LEAN

Lean software development is an application of lean manufacturing principles and practices to software development methods. Although manufacturing and software creation differs a lot, both deal with process control and value optimization problems. That’s way, years of lean manufacturing experience bring great insights about how to optimize the whole development chain, apply supporting tools (like visualisation) and practices (pull systems). Our lean classes are not only great base but also very useful extension to Scrum classes. Understanding of value stream concepts and ways of dealing with waste, you can significantly increase your effectiveness of value delivery.
