Q and A Session With Joe Justice
During the Q and A session, Joe Justice answered the following questions from attendees:
- Who sets the rules for limiting autonomy?
- What patterns or principles did the Musk companies use to reduce the cost of change in hardware development? Regression testing and integration testing, I’d presume to be the first few mentioned, but what else?
- What is your view on Scrum or whatever framework at scale? Fundamentally, what considerations should you make once your organization can be expressed only in terms of the power of 3?
- What is your advice on bringing together teams who develop software components with other teams who develop hardware components of a common product (everything has to come together, but these teams have different working methods)?
(Please note that the questions have been slightly edited to improve legibility.)
