Rapid response to change and close collaboration are important aspects in modern product development. How can these aspects be effectively adopted in companies where experts from different domains develop complex embedded systems? What kind of experiences Finnish companies have gathered from agile methods especially in the development of embedded systems, and how the implemented methods have improved the well-being at work and the productivity and the fluency of the product development?
“Sulautettujen järjestelmien ketterä käsikirja”, the Agile Handbook for Embedded Systems Development, is a pragmatic handbook based on the experiences gathered during the Tekes-funded AgiES project (Agile and Lean Product Development for Embedded ICT Systems). The handbook was collaboratively written by the AgiES researchers from the University of Turku and Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The content provides an introduction to agile working practices, targeting both developers and managers in different types of organizations developing embedded systems. A collection of agile practices and real-life experiences are presented in an easy-to-read form that aims to improve both the working practices and well-being at work. The book is written and the seminars are held in Finnish.
