Agile without Lean organisation


If you are a software agilist, you may struggle to move people's mentalities toward a different view.

InfoQ is probably the most intesting slideshow/video ressource about our modern software world.

If you have 30 minutes, take a break and watch the interview of Robin Dymond: Lean Organizations to Support Agile Teams.
He gives a summary of the lean history( Toyota production system), proposes an example of an implementation at GM, then further explains what comes next: marketing, team base organisation, etc.
