    SCRUM FOR HARDWARE - MY BOOK

    I'm the author of Scrum for Hardware, the world's first significant publication of the topic.
    It contains the stories of the pioneers of SCRUM for HARDWARE: from Wikispeed to the first "Global Scrum for Hardware Gathering", the "Agile Product Charter", and it's divided into two parts: one contains the stories, the other one presents the method with practical examples and case studies.

    The book, released under the creative commons license BY-SA, is sold worldwide on Leanpub and Amazon and includes the foreword by Joe Justice, founder of Wikispeed and inventor of eXtreme Manufacturing and it's being endorsed twice on Twitter by Jeff Sutherland, co-author of Scrum.

    Buying this book, you'll support WIKISPEED: 50% of the fees go to the project.

    SCRUM@SCALE TRAININGS

    From Fortune 100 companies to start-ups, Scrum@Scale transforms enterprises into Agile Organizations. The Scrum@Scale framework is the brainchild of Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum. Scrum@Scale naturally extends the core Scrum framework to deliver hyper-productive results across industries and disciplines, including software, IoT, hardware, manufacturing, services, finance, operations, R&D, etc. In my 2-day Scrum@Scale® course, you will gain knowledge and skills to transform your organization into an Agile enterprise. Learn how to apply fundamental Scrum and Lean product development skills to scale Scrum across multiple teams.
