Overview: Lean thinking lays emphasis on systematic elimination of waste. Waste is identified as anything that does not add value to the final work product. In this talk, we understand the different forms of waste that are hidden in software development. Further, if you are executing the project using Flow based thinking, typically a Kanban system, you can generate metrics that help you identify many of these wastes. This enables teams to take Continuous Improvement steps, thereby systematically reduce these sources of waste. Learning Objective: You will learn how to read metrics that are generated from a Flow based system, often using the Kanban Method. You will learn how to interpret this data and identify corrective action from them. About Presenter: Sudipta (Sudi) has been in the IT industry for nearly 3 decades.
