First thing’s first, let’s talk about Hardware vs. Software Development
Software Development: Teams develop a software product for use by customers.
Hardware Development: Teams develop the design for a product, to be used in manufacturing the product.

Typically, Agile is only utilized for software, making changes in hardware development come at a higher cost. Fortunately, that does not have to be the case. We have found that the benefits of Agile are not only achieved through software development, but by hardware as well. Or, in other words, Agile can be done in, and is valuable to, hardware development.
