Lean - Simple Philosophy to Do More with Less! - April 24, 2014 at 6pm

Abstract:
It took us a while to embrace Scrum, some are still trying to figure out XP, and now we have Lean. Are we going back to the drawing board on how we develop software?

Well, not really! Complementing the principles of Scrum and XP, Lean offers a simple yet powerful school of thought for individuals and organizations, enabling them to achieve the results they are capable of achieving.

With its roots in the Toyota's manufacturing production system TPS, Leans offers a philosophy focused on eliminating waste and continuous improvement, which is also very applicable to the world of software development.

In this session, Siddhartha Saran will facilitate a discussion on simple and practical ways to measure and reduce waste in software development, while offering pragmatic advice for embarking on the lean journey by taking small steps in the pursuit of continuous improvement, leading to a strong culture of collaboration and excellence.

    A little more basic than I'd have liked, but good content.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
