Free Lean Software Development Course

Alan Shalloway (NetObjectives) is offering a free Lean Software Development Course starting Dec. 1. Here's some of the email that I saw posted on the XP-St. Louis list:
Lean-Thinking provides a framework from which to improve virtually any organization's software development process. While not a panacea, Lean provides clarity on what to look at and how to solve the problems that are often beyond other methods. For software development organizations, Lean provides several principles that provide guidance to Agile methods, particiularly Scrum. Lean will assist those organizations which have either had problems adopting Agile methods or those who have been successful at the team level and are now attempting to scale it to the Enterprise. See Alan Shalloway's blog Is Scrum Failing Us?  for some examples of the challenges Lean can give guidance to.

This Free on-line training is true training, including lectures, readings, exercises and question & answer periods. The intent of this training is:
  • Provide the equivalent of a one-day Lean Software Development Overview course
  • Promote Lean Software Development to many in the industry
  • To improve the ability of participants to explain to their associates why Lean Software Development is useful
  • Provide insights on how to scale Agile/Scrum to the enterprise
Session 1: Introduction to Lean Software Development
Session 2: Five Reasons for Agility
Session 3: Lean as a Guide for Agile Methods
Session 4: QA's role in Lean Agile Software Development
Session 5: How Business Analysts can help their teams
Session 6: Lean Anti-Patterns
