Airplane Game Simulation - The Value of Flow

Flow is a very Lean idea. The first two Lean principles are “Specify Value” and “Make Value Flow”. Most agile methods have the concept of flow baked in. A key lever to promote flow is limiting work in progress, something many organizations find very challenging.

This talk and demonstration will help you “see” how to make value flows in an agile software development project and why it is important.

    Excellent presentation demonstrating cause-effect of applying agile methods and experience turbo-charge value flow, optimize the whole-system performance by thinking holistically instead of sub-optimizing parts.

    Great presentation by Dean. And the simulation was a simple yet eloquent (and fun) way of demonstrating the point. Very well done. Thanks!
