CodeMash - Day 2 - Lean Programming

Mary Poppendieck gave a very solid presentation on Lean Programming. About half way through I kind of realized that Lean provides a bit of the basis for Agile/Scrum. More justification for breaking things down and it shows the methodologies roots in manufacturing. There are seven principles of Lean

  1. Eliminate Waste (find value –waste !=value)
  2. Focus on learning – pursue relentless improvement
  3. Defer Commitment
  4. Deliver fast
  5. Respect People – make work self directing
  6. Optimize the Whole – measure UP – not just looking at the software
