Whether you are starting with a blank slate or looking to enhance your current product or service delivery, you have no doubt heard of how Agile or Lean approaches have been successfully implemented. But which methodology is right for you?
Join us on August 26 at 4 pm PDT as we feature Michael de la Maza of Heart Healthy Scrum, Jon White of Improve Consulting Group, and Pete Lim of Miro for VMUG10: Agile Design and Lean Implementation in Miro – Get the Best of Both Worlds. Over this 60-minute virtual event, Michael, Jon and Peter will highlight similarities, differences, and ideal uses for these two methodologies, then conduct two interactive activities to highlight how Miro can be used to enhance our understanding and application of Lean and Agile.
Agile finds its origins in software development, but has become a customer-focused set of practices that encourages collaborative, cross-functional teams to take an iterative approach to develop the best solution as defined by the customer. An Agile approach thrives in environments where no solution exists currently, and so it is ideal when creating new products or services.
The Lean methodology was founded in manufacturing, but for over 50 years has been applied to a variety of industries. The goal of a Lean approach is to refine business processes to ensure product or service delivery is as efficient, effective, and flexible as possible to meet or exceed customer needs. Lean focuses on reducing waste and is most commonly applied in businesses where the existing product or service delivery processes require optimization.
We hope to see you there! As always - in case you can't make it, we will have a recording of the event posted on our events page and on our YouTube playlist!
