ContextualDesign? by HughBeyer? and KarenHoltzblatt?
After doing Agile for a number of years, I'm not so sure that the LeanProgramming analogy of software development to manufacturing is the best fit. I'm interested in doing some hands-on experimentation with some of Toyota's techniques for developing products -- which don't follow the manufacturing approach at all. This has largely been triggered by reading "Product Development for the Lean Enterprise" by NeilKennedy?. The biggest difference between Toyota and LeanProgramming appears to be a lack of set-based concurrent design within LeanProgramming. See LeanDevelopmentProcess. -- JeremyPullenCategoryHomePage
