Liz Keogh: Lean vs Agile: Fight!
Liz is an experienced Lean and Agile coach, trainer, blogger and well-known international speaker. Coming from a strong technical background, her work covers a wide variety of topics, from software development and architecture to psychology and systems thinking. She is best known for her involvement in the BDD community, and was awarded the Gordon Pask award in 2010 for deepening existing ideas in the space and 'coming up with some pretty crazy ones of her own'.
Pitting one methodology against another is easy. In the fight between Scrum and Kanban, it's obvious who wins (http://lizkeogh.com/2009/09/16/scrum-vs-kanban-fight/), but what happens when we start to look at the umbrella movements? What's the difference between Lean and Agile? What strengths do they share? Where are their weak points? With one in the red corner and another in the blue, this long-awaited match sees Lean and Agile facing each other in practices, philosophies and community behaviour.
Which movement will truly emerge as the champion of the world?
