Lean Software Development: Book Review

The Book

Lean Software Development by Mary and Tom Poppendieck

The Review

I’m keen to learn how the ideas from The Toyota Way can be applied to software development and as far as I know this is the first book which addressed this, hence the reason for me reading it.

What did I learn?

In Summary

Reading this book has helped provide some more relevant examples of how to apply lean thinking in my work. I think there is quite a lot of overlap between the ideas in the agile and lean worlds in that both are trying to achieve a software development process which results in an end product that the customer actually wants.

I am keen to see how the authors suggest introducing some of these ideas in Implementing Lean Software Development.
