Topic: An Hour of Lean Software Delivery

The past decade brought us changes in technology, the mainstreaming of continuous delivery, cloud-first, mobile-first approach, shift left, shift right, sudden remote work followed by return to work mandates followed by restructuring. After all this ongoing change, how do we know if we are actually doing better?

Lean delivery, which inherits from lean auto manufacturing, provides a set of tools to measure and improve system performance. In an hour, you’ll learn:

  • Where did lean come from (contrasted to the lean startup)
  • Enough to get started implementing it
  • And decide what, if any, is a fit for you
  • Customized for testing and quality
  • To help you measure and improve your software process
  •  In a way that stands up to scrutiny

In one hour.
