In this talk we provide an overview of Lean which is the foundation for Agility. Agile practices embodied in Scrum, Kanban and XP provide an excellent starting point for improving development as demonstrated by their wide spread adoption. All of these practices are based on the Just in Time Practices and Culture of Toyota now known as Lean. After a decade of Agile, many larger organizations are looking to move beyond the basic agile practices to enhance their Agility. Lean gives a framework for continuous improvement. Lean provides a common ground for everyone in the organization to improve through learning, innovation and discipline.
