What started as an agile framework in software development has long found its way into many other areas and industries. In this seminar you and your team learn how to apply Scrum principles to develop technical hardware products. Since Scrum and its variations are extremely flexible, the application or project dimension only play a minor role. Instead of strict rules I will give you a feeling for what could offer the greatest benefit to your project.
After a theoretical introduction to Scrum, we go into detail on the procedure with Scrum in technical project management. Scrum roles, change management, requirements engineering and rapid prototyping are part of the curriculum. The iterative approach increases productivity and efficiency particularly when designing prototypes and crafting blueprint studies.
In real case studies we compare projects that applied agile methodology with those that used a sequential approach. Combined with the latest findings from science, these qualitative and quantitative results will help you recognize the advantages from Scrum and other agile principles.
Ultimately, only practical applicability of each method matters in your projects, however. Therefore, you and your team will work on a sample project to test out Scrum directly. Together you go through all steps of the technical product development process together with your team using Scrum and agile principles. All projects and case studies can be scaled up or down in complexity and time according to your requirements.
During the review you have the opportunity again to ask questions and compare traditional sequential approaches with modern Scrum. If I could already convince you of the agile way of working, we can now start planning further steps to implement Scrum and agility in your company.
