      Course description:

      Implementing Lean Software Development: Practitioners Course 2 Day
      Workshop
      Practical approaches for applying lean principles to software development.

      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
      sparked continues to this day. Agile development presents a similar
      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.

      Learn how to:

      - Identify the 20% of software development effort that delivers 80% of
      the value

      - Eliminate the real waste in software development

      - Increase quality and decrease cost through a learning-centric process

      - Reduce unnecessary complexity and avoid creating a legacy
