Whether you’re building a Klingon Bird-of-Prey or Robot Vacuum cleaner, Agile software delivery for physical products is hard.

Well, we have certainly been giving it our best shot! This is the story of our journey so far in transforming how Dyson is developing products with an ever-increasing reliance on software.
