Product Development in the Age of Automation

Can Agile works in non-software industries? More so, is it possible to be agile in a traditionally rigid and process heavy industries like Construction and Manufacturing?

In this session, we will talk about the challenges and opportunities emerging in the construction, infrastructure and manufacturing industries. Product Development will be the focus of discussion which is witnessing a major shift. Ever-changing requirements and scenarios are impacting the way we make things and forcing us to rethink the working models and team dynamics. Demand for Agile and Lean practices and innovative solutions are on the rise.

This session will try to find some answers to crucial questions like:

What is Industry 4.0? 

What is the impact on business, society, and people? 

How can we build smart products by applying Agile mythologies in conjunction with modern tools and technologies? 

How to convert current industry challenges into future opportunities?
