Interesting, slightly negative take on Lean Kanban processes…

All software development methods are compromises – imperfect attempts at managing risks and uncertainty. Sequential or serial development methods attempt to specify and fix the solution space upfront, and then manage to this fixed scope. Iterative, time-boxed development helps teams deal with uncertainty by breaking business needs down into small, concrete problems and delivering a working solution in regular steps. And iterationless, continuous-flow allows teams to rapidly test ideas and alternatives, when the problem isn’t clear and nobody is sure yet what direction to go in.

There’s no one right answer. What approach you follow depends on what your priorities and circumstances are, and what kind of problems and risks you need to solve today.

The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses: Amazon.co.uk: Eric Ries: Books.

Most new businesses fail. But most of those failures are preventable.

The Lean Startup is a new approach to business that’s being adopted around the world. It is changing the way companies are built and new products are launched.

The Lean Startup is about learning what your customers really want. It’s about testing your vision continuously, adapting and adjusting before it’s too late.

Now is the time to think Lean.

InfoQ: When the Pressure Is Really On: A “Rough and Ready” Application of Lean and Kanban at the BBC.

Excellent slides (haven’t watched the video yet)  on how the BBC used lean and Kanban to order the chaos of their product. Interesting ideas, some of which we’re already doing.
