Many organizations believe they have successfully completed the transition to agile thinking. They follow a standardized "agile" process by rote, and they boast of horrifying process smells, like "We never miss a commitment!" Lost in the flurry of self-congratulation: The notion of continuous improvement. Lean thinking brings new models and analytical tools to the table. In this session we examine conventional agile practices through a lean lens to discover opportunties for improvement (mura, muda, muri) that are hiding within the canonical ceremonies of first-generation agile practice.
