Making Improvement Standard: Making Agile Practices Dynamic through Lean Standard Work

Published on

Continuous improvement and adaptation is practically the definition of agility, but teams have to start somewhere. This session will explore how common tools like agile practice self-assessments have been combined with lean “standard work” practices to provide early agile teams with focused guidance, while encouraging them to raise their own standards as they mature and learn.

We will describe a framework for management and coaching roles involved in driving and supporting agile development efforts, based upon our experiences in both small companies and large enterprises at various stages of adoption.
