What if the car you drove to work every day got 100 mpg? Joe Justice and his Wikispeed team have developed a functional prototype. Using Agile radical management methods, their prototype was developed in just three months, instead of the multi-year process that traditional manufacturing requires.
OuiShare Talk where Joe Justice, team leader of Team Wikispeed (http://www.wikispeed.com/) explains how using Extreme Manufacturing methodology a team of 150+ volunteers around the world managed to build a car in 3 months.

Here are excerpts from a Question and Answer session between Joe Justice, Team Lead of Team WIKISPEED, and the French newspaper LE TEMPS:
Last week I had the opportunity to participate in an “Extreme Manufacturing” event at Lockheed. The event was run by Joe Justice of WikiSpeed, and organized by Scrum Inc. The plan was that by using agile methodologies, we would build a street legal car capable of getting 100 mpg in six half hour “sprints”.
Free Open Source Software Academia (FOSSA) is celebrating 50 years in 2013! WIKISPEED, as an open source project, is giving back to the landscape of open source work. Even more importantly, projects like WIKISPEED build on all the open source tools that have been build up to make distributed, collaborative projects like this affordable to anyone with passion and about 2 hours a week!
Welcome to the Agile eXtreme Manufacturing Build Party! Use Scrum to build a car in 60-minute sprints. Guided by Joe Justice and other professional coaches, it’s an inspirational experience that leaves participants confident about conquering their work using Scrum. Because attendees apply the Scrum framework and eXtreme Manufacturing to solve complex problems, build parties are a terrific way to win buy-in about agile practices. The case study on WIKISPEED methodsis recommended as a useful pre-reading for the Build Party!
Real leadership is about transforming the system, not just succeeding within or despite the system. We know how to run organizations in ways that that lift up the human spirit, both for those doing the work and those for whom the work is done. In last week’s article I suggested that we get on with it.
WikiSpeed is a social enterprise applying cutting-edge collaboration techniques from the open-source software world, to solve problems for social good.
Some weeks ago I ran into Joe Justice fromWIKISPEED after one of his presentations. Well, not literally of course, I’m not real. And it wasn’t like he bumped into a computer. Anyway, it was the same day he and Jurgen Appelo agreed to make WIKISPEED aHappy Melly company. For Joe it was a remarkable day in many ways, he also got acquainted with the joys of typical Dutch cuisine (Smashed vegies and potatoes, I kid you not). This week I gave him a call to talk about his plans for the future. The best part? I got to meet his furry companion Scrum Cat (a spitting image for grumpy cat).
Today was a good day for learning, mostly for the adults, but very likely for the kids too. Thanks to my Integrative Studio class, I was going to be sitting in on a discussion with Joe Justice who recently spoke at TEDxRanier about his Wiki Speed project.
Een nieuwe manier van auto's produceren, met verregaande gevolgen
The open-hardware movement got a tremendous boost today when WIKISPEED, an innovative automotive company building modular, high-performance cars using agile design principles, and Open Source Ecology (OSE), a group committed to providing free plans and processes necessary for building the global economy, announced that they are teaming up to revolutionize transportation in the developing world.
Fasten your seatbelts folks; this is going to be a wild ride. We are very proud to announce that Joe Justice and the incredible people of WIKISPEED have joined Happy Melly.They will be, in their own words, ‘An enthusiastic proponent of this platform for focus on creating jobs that employees will love while knocking down barriers to internationalization for corporations of all sizes. Because that is awesome.’
WIKISPEED is a volunteer based green automotive-prototyping company, that's distributed around the world and coming together on a Kerika board to design and build safe, low-cost, ultra-efficient, road-legal vehicles.
