Agile SW&HW at Tesla and SpaceX, Oct 10, 2023
Learn what Agile and Digital Transformation is really about, based on Joe Justice’s experience from Tesla and SpaceX.
Agile hardware development improves business growth, product innovation, and speed of response to change.
For example, a traditional automotive company takes 2.5 years for a minor change and 5 to 7 years for a significant change. In an agile automotive company, headlights, taillights, and charging ports are changed in two days. These changes are made more than 20 times a week and are all installed in the vehicle.
How is this possible?
Agile development reduces bottlenecks to a company’s design and manufacturing speed, such as approvals, budgets, and responses to change.
Joe shares the following story. ‘Many business people say that software has caused so many innovations that “software eats the world.” But it is not software that is eating the world. Software companies are only a small fraction of the first companies to become agile and achieve rapid release. It is Agile that is eating the world.”
