The term Skunk Works dates back to 1943, during WWII, when the U.S. Army tasked Lockheed with designing America’s first fighter jet. A crack engineering team, led by Kelly Johnson, delivered it in just 143 days.

Kelly codified how to run a Skunk Works without going over budget or running late through a set of 14 Rules.

Download our paper - The Skunk Works Option - to see how these rules work in combination with an Agile process to get quality software built faster.
