Lean Software Development: Principles and ToolsGeorge Paci
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
Lean Software Development, largely created and popularized by Mary and Tom Poppendieck, is a set of principles and tools for approaching software with a value-focused mindset. Heavily influenced by Lean Product Design, itself the result of porting Lean Manufacturing insights over into the design realm, it can change the way you think about what you're doing and why. Lean emphasizes the performance of the entire software-development system, and strongly cautions against optimizing pieces at the expense of the whole.
This session will be a whirlwind tour through seven principles of Lean Software Development, and one thinking tool associated with each principle. The common thread of focusing on value, instead of on requirements or process or utilization, ties the concepts together.
