Can agile be used for all product development

When complexity in products increase, traditional methods for product development become more and more obsolete. This was apparent for the forerunners in the software industry a few decades ago. Successful high-tech companies also started to use agile development when creating new products including both hardware and software. Instead of waiting for other innovators to dominate their markets, teams and leaders in those companies chose to go agile. More recently, early movers in more traditional companies with their background in hardware have also started to experiment with agile product development.

Can agile development be used for all product development? Even by more traditional companies? Even when developing products made primarily of metal, plastic, or cellulose? If so, what are the benefits and pitfalls?
In this webinar, you will meet four agile leaders when they dig into the subject.
