Agile Styles: Lean and DSDM
This second Agile2006 Agile Styles video looks at DSDM and Lean. Jean Tabaka covered the history and principles of the venerable DSDM methodology, founded in 1994 and now accepted in the UK for use on government contracts. Mary Poppendieck gave real examples of how the 7 Lean principles provide competitive advantage, and discussed the relationship between quality, speedy delivery and low cost.

She authored "Collaboration Explained: Facilitation Skills for Software Project Leaders." Mary Poppendieck (poppendieck.com) teaches and consults worldwide on Lean principles for software.
