MY BOOK "SCRUM FOR HARDWARE"
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," and the "Agile Product Charter." It's divided into three parts: the first one contains the stories, the second one presents the method, with many practical examples, and the third one contains case studies implemented by the author.
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, inventor of eXtreme Manufacturing. It's being endorsed twice on Twitter by Jeff Sutherland, co-author of Scrum.
By buying this book, you'll support WIKISPEED: 50% of the fees go to the project.
