This is a rerun episode so a re-release of the episode with Joe Justice of WIKISPEED and Scrum Inc. Why a rerun? There are a few reasons for it and I brought up some during the last episode.

One of the reasons, as mentioned, has to do with slowing down at the beginning of the year. Another reason is that this episode was in the top 5 most downloaded episodes in 2017. It had a major impact on me as well since after my conversation with Joe I embraced agile to the fullest: I use it both in my professional and personal life. This re-release emphasizes the importance of this topic. Execution is extremely important for startups and agile is one of the best or the best method I know for project management, and for hardware its application is spreading faster and faster.

As for Joe he is the President of Scrum @ Hardware at Scrum Inc, the company which is led by the initiator of scum, Jeff Sutherland.

Enjoy this very inspiring, information-dense episode.
