Developing without specifications?

Sounds provocative, or unusual at the least. This was initially a new experience for many partners in the development of the StreetScooter. They were used to being given specifications dictated to them in a top-down way. Now they were expected to determine the specifications together with the other partners. And for a good reason: We wanted to start with a white sheet of paper and develop a low-cost electric car free of restrictions. Communication along the entire value
chain was absolutely mission critical here. It was the only way to jointly raise cost potentials.
