A good agile team can implement features in any order and deliver
working, deployable software every two weeks or so. The question is
not "Can this really be done?" (Indeed it can.) or "How can this be
done " (With serious discipline). The question you should be asking
is "How can my organization benefit from this remarkable opportunity?"
When manufacturers began to make products "Just-in-Time" and
warehouses began to ship products the same day they were ordered and
FedEx delivered them overnight, a revolution in productivity was

opportunity to companies, but only if they can exploit its benefits.
Agile development will not help a company that takes months to act on
a customer request, nor will it help a company that fails to leverage
the feedback of short iterations.
This course explores the lessons of lean manufacturing, lean
logistics, and lean product development to explore out how
organizations can leverage the benefits of agile software development.
