Practical Lean Product Development
Engineering practices, Agile, devops ... they're all important. But they're not nearly as important if you're not building the right things to start with. Don Reinertsen is a lean product development genius (see his book, The Principles of Product Development Flow), but his work is intimidating in it's depth. This presentation will distill some of the most useful concepts that Reinertsen has outlined (his book has 175 principles!) in a practical way that will allow attendees to implement simply and quickly.
