Room 1: Auditorium

In the world of industry, agility has become a key element to remaining competitive. However, most Industrial products require so many skills that having a team with less than ten people is a mirage. To achieve industrial agility, companies need to scale Scrum from day zero. This presentation aims to dispel doubts and show how agile can permeate the entire industrial lifecycle, from design and prototype to mass production. Through numerous practical examples from Scrum@Scale case studies in Industrial, Oil & Gas, Automotive, and Civil Engineering, taken from the new book ``Scrum for Hardware Explained,`` we will guide you on an exploratory journey into the depths of Scrum applied to industry. During the talk, we will explain why Industrial Agility is an irreplaceable competitive advantage, how to achieve organizational agility in the industry, the key steps to follow, and mistakes to avoid. By the end of this session, you will clearly understand why agility is a critical element in modern and future industries.
