The Poppendiecks offer abeautiful blend of history, theory, and practice."

"I've enjoyed reading the book very much. I feel it might even be better than thefirst lean book by Tom and Mary, while that one was already exceptionallygood! Mary especially has a lot of knowledge related to lean techniques inproduct development and manufacturing. It's rare that these techniques areactually translated to software. This is something no other book does well(except their first book)."

They beginwith a compelling history of lean thinking, then move to key areas such asvalue, waste, and people. Each chapter includes exercises to help you apply keypoints. If you want a better understanding of how lean ideas can work withsoftware, this book is for you."

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet 12 Nov 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gives many stories about implementing lean principles as it goes through them. There has been a considerable effort to get stories relevant to software development. There is a strong bias in the stories toward product development over bespoke, and some stories relate more to non-software products so the reader will need to understand and apply the principle to his / her own situation. For all of this, it is a treasure house for anyone wishing to propagate the message of lean development. One would need other books or knowledge from other sources to before being able to implement the individual recommended practices. For lean development this is a great starting point to capture the imagination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very informative 5 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
I expected to learn about the leans ideas in the area of SW development. This book really fullfilled my expectation on this. The book is very focused, 230 pages, which I really appreciate. I found the examples from different industries that the authors very useful. It gives depth to the presented ideas. I think that everyone that is invoolved in SW development should read this. Many agile books and processes focus on product development in a way that seems typical for product companies. But this book is also useful for the SW consulting segment, both for the buyers and the sellers of these kind of services.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth reading 19 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback
A very good introduction to the lean concepts. After reading this book it became very clear where the major sources of waste are in the projects I work on. It may not prove so helpful to everyone but it helped me realise that you can actually do something about this waste rather than assuming it's just the way it works.
