(PRWEB) February 21, 2012
SolutionsIQ, a leading provider of Agile consulting, certified training, coaching, development, and Agile talent services, proudly announces the hire of Joe Justice as a managing consultant. Justice is the founder of WIKISPEED, a green automotive-prototyping company that utilizes Agile methods to build cars.
WIKISPEED is currently building a mass-manufacturable, ultra-low-cost, 100-mpg commuter car. Based in Seattle and led by Justice, WIKISPEED is an all-volunteer distributed Agile/Scrum team — members contribute their work from various locations and iteratively enhance the vehicle every two weeks. This model allows extremely high-speed development, especially when paired with rapid prototyping manufacturing tools.
“Joe began as many of us have, helping clients with Agile software development capabilities," said Charlie Rudd, CEO, SolutionsIQ. “What he has done with the WIKISPEED project is nothing short of revolutionary. What Joe brings to the table is the ability to exploit the full value of the Agile practices that have proven so useful in software engineering to new domains, including manufacturing. What makes this success so remarkable is that the WIKISPEED team is a globally-distributed group of volunteers with limited training who have produced not just a car, but a car with breakout performance.”
“I’m thrilled to join the SolutionsIQ team,” said Justice. “SolutionsIQ has been doing Agile for a long time and has one of the most comprehensive service portfolios in the industry.”
With more than 30 years of experience, SolutionsIQ has a deep understanding of software delivery excellence. The company’s broad range of consulting and training services is essential to any Agile development project or transformation. As a thought leader in the Agile community, SolutionsIQ is uniquely equipped to help its international client base leverage Agile software development and project management methods to deliver solutions more reliably.
