Presentation Overview:
The Lean Enterprise approach to process excellence has revolutionized manufacturing world-wide and is now being used by companies seeking similar breakthrough results in product development. In this executive briefing we will discuss how Lean Principles can be applied to managing software development. By focusing on what actually generates customer value, Lean challenges conventional notions of "best practices". Companies implementing Lean move quickly to dramatically simplify and speed up processes, leverage architecture design choices, and overcome internal and external boundaries.

Learning Objectives:
-Understand how to help your teams focus on what actually adds customer value
-Discover eight ways to speed up your projects
-Identify six key measurements for evaluating how wasteful/lean your processes are
-See how specifications and architectures can be sources of waste as well as value
-Learn about five key principles for achieving Lean Software Development
-Uncover hidden sources of waste in software processes and products
-Get a fresh perspective on how to select and deploy "best practices"
-Understand how Lean differs from other approaches to software process excellence
