Kerika and WIKISPEED
Global, distributed, agile
Kerika is pleased to partner with the WIKISPEED project, a global, volunteer-based green automotive-prototyping company with a desire to change the world for better.
What started as a solo effort in one town has quickly become a global movement for green engineering: the WIKISPEED team is working on building a car that does 100 miles per gallon to reduce gasoline consumption and help avert climate change.
(Oh, and a microhouse that costs $100, to help end homelessness...)
From Post-Its to an online Scrum Board
The WIKISPEED crew went from hundreds of Post-Its covering the walls in their main shop (in Lynnwood, Washington) to an online Scrum Board that's shared in real-time with volunteers across four continents:
