  • In summation, Value Stream Mapping leads us to a somewhat startling, but potentially profound and insightful conclusion:The amount of touch time (value added) in software development is only a small portion (5-10-20%) of the overall time it takes to deliver software to our customers.Indeed, in one analysis we did, reducing the time it takes to develop and test the software for a new feature from 4-6 months to zero, would only reduce the actual time to market for new features from 22-16 months! Clearly, focusing only on software development activity in that enterprise will not produce the business results sufficient to assure survival. You have to take the larger view and focus on the delays.Therefore, we consider Value Stream Mapping to be an essential part of the Lean Thinking Manager-Teacher’s tool kit, and it should be applied routinely to help the enterprise more assuredly achieve the sustainably shortest lead time.
  • There are currently dozens of Lean Coffees happening world-wide, including Seattle, San Francisco, Stockholm, Toronto, Boulder, New York City, and now Canberra.
  • Everybody writes down topics they'd like to discuss on stickies placing them in a column in the center of the table.

  • Lean Coffee Mia Horrigan Director ICT Strategy and Advisory Services Zen Ex Machina zenexmachina.wordpress.com
  • Lean • Production practice that considers expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination • “Value" is defined as any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for www.zenexmachina.com
  • Lean Goals and Strategy • Improve quality: Understand what customers' wants and needs and design processes to meet their expectations and requirements • Eliminate waste: Waste is any activity that consumes time, resources, or space but does not add any value to the product or service www.zenexmachina.com
  • Need to be able to Recoginise Waste • If some activity could be bypassed or the result could be achieved without it • Partially done coding eventually abandoned during the development process • Extra processes and features not often used by customers • Waiting for other activities, teams, processes • Defects and lower quality • Managerial overhead not producing real value www.zenexmachina.com
  • Value Stream Mapping • Analyse and design flow of materials and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer http://scaledagileframework.com/value-streams/
  • 7 Lean Principals • • • • • • • Eliminate waste Amplify learning Decide as late as possible Deliver as fast as possible Empower the team Build integrity in See the whole www.zenexmachina.com
  • What is Lean Coffee? • Structured, but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and talk • Discussion is directed and productive because the agenda is democratically generated
  • Talk about what is Relevant to the Team Replaces standard meeting model where someone shows up with a literal "agenda" that frequently keeps a lot of relevant and important information from arising www.zenexmachina.com
  • How did Lean Coffee Start? • Started in Seattle in 2009. Jim Benson and Jeremy Lightsmith wanted to start a group that would discuss Lean techniques • Wanted a group that did not rely on anything other than people showing up and wanting to learn or create • There are currently dozens of Lean Coffees happening world-wide, including Seattle, San Francisco, Stockholm, Toronto, New York City, and now Canberra www.zenexmachina.com
  • Why Lean Coffee? • • • • • Newly forming team Customer not happy with time delays Quality issues Low morale Wanted an informal session to discuss: – What’s happening – How we can be more efficient and effective – How can we make our processes better www.zenexmachina.com
  • Vision and Values • Fitted in well to vision and values: “deliver maximum value to our customers as efficiently as possible” www.zenexmachina.com
  • Our First Lean Coffee All you need to start: • Good Coffee • Table • Post-it notes & pens • Interest
  • Getting Started http://leancoffee.org/
  • What to Discuss? • Everybody writes down topics they'd like to discuss on stickies placing them in the centre of the table • These can be literally whatever people want to discuss or follow a theme • Each topic is briefly described by its writer http://leancoffee.org/
  • Vote www.zenexmachina.com
  • Talk • Start having a conversation • It’s really is that simple • The power is that we now have a list of topics everyone at the table is interested in and is motivated to discuss www.zenexmachina.com

  • Take notes of the discussion http://seattle.leancoffee.org/page/2/
  • Let’s have a Lean Coffee www.zenexmachina.com
  • The Mechanics of it All • We spend 2 mins writing down topics people want to discuss • We spend 2 - 5 mins minutes letting people explain their topics (15-30 secs each) • We vote on which topics to discuss in what order. Each person gets 3 votes • We start talking. We let the conversation run for 5 minutes per topic, at the 5 minute mark we take a show of thumbs (up, down, neutral) to see if we want to stay on this topic or move on www.zenexmachina.com
