**The is the reschedule of our cancelled 4/18 presentation. We hope you can join us!**
We welcome Marth Szylberg (pr. Shil-berg) to present 'Lean and Software Development / Agile!' for our April meeting.
It is becoming common to integrate process improvement with software development efforts – in order to streamline processes before adopting or developing technology. This is often done to minimize technology needs. This presentation will discuss the application of lean to software development and also lean’s relationship to Agile methods.
For the past six years, Martha has been a Business Process Engineer facilitating Lean and Six Sigma process improvement events with cross - functional teams spanning all business areas. She co-founded and facilitates the Iowa City - Cedar Rapids Lean Coffee group through the Iowa Lean Consortium. Prior to being a Business Process engineer, she was a member of a software development team and acted as a liaison between business users and developers by eliciting requirements, developing screen mock-ups, holding design review and user acceptance testing sessions, training end users and providing application support.
