Agile Breakfast with Mary and Tom Poppendieck
Let’s come to meet and discuss with authors of best sellers Leading Lean Software Development, Implementing Lean Software Development or Lean Software Development – An Agile Toolkit!
Topic: LEAN Software Development
Software is the heart and soul of a vast number of products and business processes;
every year the ability to develop robust software systems quickly and reliably becomes
more critical to the world economy. And yet, most companies use software
development processes that were born when systems were coded in assembly language
and computer hardware was more expensive than programmers' salaries. Today we
have pervasive internet, omnipresent social media, big data, and massively scalable
hardware. These advances have flourished largely outside the realm of traditional
software development practices, and they call into question the conventional wisdom
of what it means to develop, scale, and maintain excellent software-intensive systems.
Mary started her career as a process control programmer, moved on to manage the IT department of a manufacturing plant, and then ended up in product development, where she was both a product champion and department manager. She wrote the book Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit to explain how the lean principles from manufacturing offer a better approach to software development.
Tom is an enterprise analyst and architect, and an agile process mentor. He focuses on identifying real business value and enabling product teams to realize that value. His modeling and mentoring skills are rooted in his experience as a physics professor. He has broad experience from consulting in healthcare, logistics, mortgage banking, and travel services.
