"Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away"
One of the most effective ways of improving profitability and reducing costs is identifying and eliminating any waste in your SLDC process that doesn’t add value.
We will look at the 7 Wastes of Lean Manufacturing — popularized by Toyota — and how they apply to the Software Development industry.
This includes: Partially Done Work, Extra Features, Relearning, Handoffs, Delays, Task Switching, and Defects.
We will look at how identifying these wastes, how to reduce them, and how to deliver software projects with lower costs (time, money, resources).
Who should attend:
Developer’s , Product Managers, Product Owners, QA’s, and anyone else involved in the Software Development Lifecycle will all learn valuable takeaways, tools, and practices to carry out these Lean Principles and improve their Delivery and Speed.
Who is Speaking:
Victor Szoltysek is an emergency firefighter. He has a long history of software consulting and effectively putting-out-fires around corporate America.
He is often dropped-in during serious project difficulties and cost-overruns.
He has been able to successfully turn around some projects, seen others fail miserably, and, regrettably, has personally witnessed close to one billion dollars in project write-offs. That’s billion with a B!
Throughout his career and dozens of post-mortem analysis, he’s acquired a very specific set of skills, including a keen premonition of project failures before they happen, and insights how they could easily have been avoided.
Currently, he works at Pivotal as a Platform Architect helping clients with cloud transformations and effective lean software development, to help you proactively avert disaster and be seen as a valued, skilled, and respected lean software expert.
