My domain is computer science. So when I talk about lean I am referring to the lean software development. It is an adaption of lean manufacturing modified to the software development domain. The starting point of lean was the Toyota Production System.
There are 7 lean principles: Eliminate waste, Amplify learning, Decide as late as possible, Deliver as fast as possible, Empower the team, Build integrity in, See the whole.
As a Certified Scrum Master, I believe software development companies should do agile the right way. Most don’t.
Frankly, I don’t really care about the syntax of the programming language. The semantics of the program is much more important.
Nothing creepy, like having claws for hands…
But a principle I hold close goes like this, if I have to do something a second time, I will try to automate it.
Automation and monitoring systems keep my mind clear and clean.
And allow me to focus on getting results.
