Lean-Agile way: Increase Value generation with increase execution speed and reduce cycle time

As we know Lean is as much philosophy as it is approach and Agle method based on 4 value and 12 principles.The basic idea is to increase or enhance customer value while reducing waste.The agile approach implements the Lean basic concepts in software development and emphasizes the customer satisfaction and the continuous improvement of the development process . The agile approach attempts to deliver working software continuously, which enables checking by demonstrations whether the customer needs are fulfilled. The overall goal of Lean development,instead, is to reach a smooth, continuous flow of production with a minimumwaste and maximum flexibility in the process

In this session I would like to share a case study on Lean - agile(a Hybrid) approach, how we have reduced the cycle time goal, improve the product quality in Industrial Automation software product development arena

  • how we have deployed Lean-Agile hybrid model.
  • How we have used Lean thinking which emphasizes value-adding production.
  • How we have optimizing the whole with sustainability and speed.
  • How we have developed Value Generation process( Value Strem Mapping)
  • Flat team structure and learning

    Chandan - it doesn't seem to be right fit in the scaling agile track. Do you want to check out other tracks?

      Hi Tathagat,


      Thanks for your input.


      I am proposing now in Agile Lifecycle track.

      My Initial thought was to keep it in Scaling Agile from lean point of view, we focus on waste reduction and accelerate the execution speed.
