Lean and the Reasons for Going Agile - Part 1

November 30, 2006 — Posted by Jim Trott

Listen to the podcast Lean and the Reasons for Going Agile - Part 1

We have been snowed in here in Seattle for the last week. It wasn’t that much snow, relative to Milwaukee, where I spent some of my childhood, but it was enough to disrupt most of our infrastructure. We just are not used to thinking about snow here. How to drive in it, what to do if we get stuck, how to adjust. It took my neighbor almost 8 hours to get from his Microsoft office to home the other night. Just a nightmare.

This show involves two conversations. First, a short discussion about how the need for speed-to-market to stay ahead of younger competition is a fundamental driver for Lean-Agile. Then, we continue the conversation we started last week about Lean-Agile and Project Managers.

Relentless Improvement and the Mindset of Lean

November 19, 2006 — Posted by Jim Trott

I just ran across a great blog entry by Mike Schaffner called Implementing Lean: Are you willing to be relentless? I like his observation that Lean, Six Sigma (and I would include Lean-Agile) is not a set of tools and techniques; instead, at their heart, it is a way of life, the fundamental way we will do business.

Lean-Agile and the Project Manager - Part 1

November 16, 2006 — Posted by Jim Trott

Listen to the podcast Lean-Agile and Project Management - Part 1

On Lean-Agile Straight Talk, we have taken a fair amount of time working through the basic dimensions of Lean-Agile product development: Lean Principles, Agile Processes, and Technical Practices. We have talked in general about how we got here and why it is important. We have laid enough foundation and can dive down a bit.
