LEGO Millenium Falcon World Record

Inspired by the Heise Livestream, a team of 27 TNG colleages set a new record of 2h 09min 54sec for the construction of the largest Lego set ever produced.

The attained frequency of just under one brick per second was achieved with careful planning. The "Product Owner" created a dependency graph over all 17 packets of the set and, based on that, created stories to be worked on independently by the building teams during the Legothon. Retrospectives and a review process reduced the error rate still further.

The current best time of 6:18:15 was reduced by almost two thirds, although with an unlimited team size.
