Agile Methods of Software Development : Lean

5 Feb

There are 4 different methods of Agile Software Development (ASD), they are;

  • Scrum
  • Kanban
  • Xp
  • Lean

I will focus on the key aspects of the lean method.Lean principles originate from the lean manufacturing approach also known as ‘just-in-time production’, and pioneered by Toyota. Lean manufacturing is a process management philosophy that transformed the car manufacturer’s approach to building vehicles. Lean software development is based on 7 different principles, they are:

1. Eliminate waste
2. Build Quality In
3. Create knowledge
4. Defer Commitment
5. Deliver Fast
6. Respect people
7. Optimise the whole.

There is also a video posted that will help you understand (ignore the music and the asian man)
