Certified Scrum for Hardware and Manufacturing (CSM) Course

Change Your Game with Scrum for Hardware and Manufacturing.

scrum for hardware and manufacturing  course

Learn Scrum, the framework Tesla uses to deliver next generation products quickly.

 

How are companies like Tesla, Apple and Google applying software development process to deliver hardware products? Why are companies like Ford transitioning to these techniques? As the importance of speed, innovation and customer satisfaction increase, companies are turning to Agile and Scrum. Manufacturing, telco engineering, hardware development, physical product development are different from software. Scrum can provide excellent benefits for these hardware and manufacturing industries however those differences require a different hardware friendly approach.

Our Certified Scrum for hardware and manufacturing course is unique. All of the examples, stories, and case studies are from the equipment, aviation, automotive, electronics or medical device product development. We take you through how Scrum can be applied in design, prototyping and production environments. We show you how Scrum will change your thinking about everything from procurement to production line design and setup.

We don’t just cover Scrum in this course as Agile is broader then the Scrum framework. We cover product engineering and architecture ideas that enable rapid development, including test driven development, object oriented design and interface patterns as they apply to hardware. We look at set based design and the techniques Toyota used to develop the Prius in 2.5 years.

Solving for a workable Definition of Done.

Lean thinking is critically important in manufacturing and we look at how Scrum and Lean complement each other to increase speed, quality and the pace of improvement in work systems.

Innovel’s Certified Scrum training for Hardware and Manufacturing is a 3 day course that meets the Scrum Alliance’s Certified Scrum Master® (CSM) learning objectives and certification is an option for everyone participating in the training.

Our Scrum for Hardware and Manufacturing training is fun and engaging. Our courses are highly interactive workshops where participants learn by doing, discussing, playing and debating. Our instructors have engineering degrees and understand the differences between software and hardware worlds.

Over 90% of all Innovel students “definitely recommend” Innovel’s training to their colleagues. In fact our our biggest business is repeat customers getting training for others within their company.

The course covers far more than the basics of Scrum as outlined by the Scrum Alliance. Our goal is to provide you with concrete ideas you can implement the day after in your company. Our students learn how to implement Scrum with an Agile mindset, so they can adapt to the many possible issues that will arise. When you leave our Certified Scrum for hardware and manufacturing course you will have a new set of tools and a more effective way to do work and complete product development wherever your career takes you. Recommended reading for individuals interested taking the exam is the Certified Scrum Master Study Guide. Note that both this guide and the exam are about Scrum in a software context.

The vast majority of attendees do obtain certification. There are a few reasons someone may not achieve CSM status after a course:

  • They did not meet the trainer’s expectations of attendance so they are ineligible for CSM status.
  • They did not complete the homework assigned to make up for missed course time to the trainer's expectations.
  • After the training they did not follow directions in the Welcome email from the Scrum Alliance inviting them to set up a profile to gain access to the online CSM test.
  • After setting up a profile, they did not complete and/or pass the online CSM test administered by the Scrum Alliance.
