Notes from the LeanSSC Atlanta 2010 conference

May 7, 2010 — Posted by Jim Trott

Listen to the webinar audio Notes from LeanSSC Atlanta 2010

In this show, Alan Shalloway shares his impressions from the inaugural conference of the LeanSSC which was held in Atlanta, Georgia. LeanSSC stands for the Lean Software and Systems Consortium. This is a consortium of practitioners and experts from many organizations who are committed to assisting enterprises that depend on software – from start-ups to those that build complex, software intensive products, systems & services – with the application of Lean Thinking throughout the enterprise. 

The conference website is at Atlanta2010.LeanSSC.org and we are busily posting presentations and video from the conference to give you a notion of the many topics that were discussed.

The speakers at this conference were from the top notch of our industry, people who have done the hard work of bringing these good approaches to the enterprise. There was a lot of talk about what works and what doesn't work. It was great to be among like-minded people who could debate passionately about the issues but coming from a common foundation.

We talk about who was there, what was surprising, and some of the future vision that speakers shared. Amidst all the diversity was that there were common themes: respect for the knowledge of people, the importance of paying attention to key principles, maintaining a common vision.

We hope you can come to the next conference: either this this fall in Europe or next year in Los Angeles!

This is a movement. It is open and driven by a broad spectrum community of practitioners, making knowledge available to industry.
