How to win a solar challenge race by using lean agile

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do you build a solar car? Okay and how do you win a race with a superlight solar car? We as agile coaches had no clue. Never the less we started helping out an engineering team to build their car from scratch in a year and win the most prestige’s solar race in Australia (http://www.worldsolarchallenge.org/). We want to share our experiences with coaching this team. We share what we have learned from coaching a vehicle building team instead of software.

Most importantly, we learned couple of awesome things we would have never learned by only staying in the software teams. All we learned is directly applicable (back) to software teams.

And of course, 'our' guys won the race! So how did scrum or we (as coaches) help?

Learning Outcomes:

-       How to apply agile in (hardware) engineering?

-       How to create a doing mindset

-       What difference does a tangible product make?

-       How did scrum made the difference?

-       What other tools did we use

-       What were the challenges we solved (fun, overtime, cooperation, planning, making it happen etc)


Prerequisites Knowledge: Basic knowledge about Agile/Scrum
