Readers of this blog know that this year's LAS Conference is focused on bridging the gap from that first Scrum/Agile project to becoming a Lean enterprise. To this end we have invited two thought leaders as our Keynote Speakers:
- Henrik Kniberg, Swedish author of Scrum and XP from the Trenches, explores the core elements of both Agile and Lean, and how these toolboxes can be successfully combined: 'The Thinking Tool Called Agile.'
- Mary & Tom Poppendieck, co-authors of the Lean Software Development books, questions the biggest fallacy in organizing work -- the idea that schedules or “plans” lead to predictable performance. The Tyranny of “The Plan”
Lean Leadership Course
After the conference, Mary & Tom Poppendieck will hold a Lean Leadership Workshop for Managers and Thought Leaders: How to structure work in your organization to achieve much better results. Conference participants receive a 10% discount — register directly with the SwissICT.
