Agile Hardware Development with Scrum

"Agile Hardware Development" is a recent innovation that is not yet well understood. In this presentation, we began by clarifying what the term means, and then focused on the basic concepts of developing hardware with the Scrum framework. While Scrum can be an effective approach for hardware development, the practicalities of "Scrum for Hardware" can differ substantially from, or even violate, norms commonly seen in the software world. We explored these differences at a level of detail intended to make the transition to hardware development a realistic possibility for people who are well-versed in Scrum.
