Lean Tools for Agile Software Development with Lisa Lueck

Both Lean and Agile methodologies are based upon similar principles of continuous improvement, emphasis on feedback from the customer and eliminating unnecessary process in order to increase efficiency. Change the conversation with your Product Owner and delivery team through the use of lean tools. In this session, we will look at an overview of lean and disciplined agile and explore a handful of lean tools delivery teams can leverage to identify customer needs and promote continuous improvement. Marrying the practices of two major movements, lean and agile, is not only smart it is the foundation of your evolution towards DevOps.
