  • The Evolution of Lean Thinking - Transitioning from Lean Thinking to FLOW Thinking

    The Flow System provides a re-imagined system for organizations to understand complexity, embrace teamwork, and autonomous team-based leadership structures. It is a holistic FLOW-based approach to delivering Customer 1st Value. It is built on a foundation of TPS and LEAN, plus a new triple helix structure known as the DNA of Organizations.

  • Rediscovering Lean

    For those who love continuous improvement, software engineering fits. Turn in any direction and you’ll see potential for doing better, going faster and increasing quality. You should not try to chase the latest and greatest agile practices. Instead, spend time working out your unique approach based on the goal you have been given, the people you have, and the underlying principles that you hold.

  • The Data Science Mindset: Six Principles to Build Healthy Data-Driven Organizations

    In this article, business and technical leaders will learn methods to assess whether their organization is data-driven and benchmark its data science maturity. They will learn how to use the Healthy Data Science Organization Framework to nurture a data science mindset within the organization.

  • How to Slow Down to Go Faster Than Ever in Software Development

    Going fast without control could be the biggest enemy of software development. By slowing down on people, we improve professionalism and craftsmanship. By slowing down on process, we improve adaptation and efficiency. And by slowing down on product, we improve automation and quality. When we focus on these areas, we start to cultivate a development culture enabling software development fast.

  • Using Checklists to Organize Software Development Processes

    A checklist as a process organization tool has already made a good showing in aviation and healthcare. In this article, Zakhar Yung explains how Agile teams take advantage of checklists at different stages of software development processes including sprint planning, software testing, deployment and debugging, and discover their benefits for your own project.

  • Making Agile Deliver Good Software

    Programmers and business people should invest time and energy to understand each other and work together to fix problems in software delivery. Nic Ferrier talks about deploying agile effectively, the need for managers or Scrum masters in agile, how focusing on architecture can improve collaboration and how technology can help us to avoid some of the organizational problems that teams experience.

  • Q&A with Barry Boehm and Richard Turner on The Incremental Commitment Spiral Model

    The Incremental Commitment Spiral Model describes a process model generator. InfoQ interviewed the authors about the principles underlying the Incremental Commitment Spiral Model (ICSM), applying the ICSM, benefits that organization can get from it, and how organizations can use the ICSM to determine under what conditions to use software-intensive agile frameworks like Scrum, DSDM, SAFe, or DAD.

  • Towards Agile CMMI Level 3: Requirement Development and Verification

    This article shows how to do requirement development in agile environments, covering concepts and offering examples of how an agile team could run a CMMI for Development SCAMPI to become appraised at a targeted level 3 for the areas of requirements development and verification.

  • Spreading CMMI Practices among Agile Teams in Big Organizations

    Agile methodologies have become mainstream because they provide a better fit to the modern, changing software world. CMMI is a cross-organizational approach which has proven successful in terms of quality assurance and cost when executed properly. Big organizations with self-organized agile teams can achieve technical maturity levels, by using a common metalanguage and a good-practices catalog.

  • Kanban - Isn’t It Just Common Sense?

    We have seen how the notion of heuristics is powerful when thinking about product development. The Agile Manifesto can be thought of as a set of heuristics, with individual Agile processes and practices. This Kanban Thinking model includes 5 kanban heuristics that encapsulate the key areas to focus upon, along with 3 impacts that encapsulate the areas of improvement.

  • The Essence of Software Engineering: Book Review and Interview with Ivar Jacobson

    The essence of software engineering introduces the Software Engineering Method and Theory (SEMAT) initiative, and describes how it can be used in software development to understand and improve the way of working. It uses agile principles to support self-organizing teams in adopting agile and lean development practices. An interview with Ivar Jacobson, one of the authors and leaders of SEMAT.

  • Design For Hybrid Agile Adoption

    Offshore Development is a critical success factor for many organizations as is adopting Agile methodologies. However, these two techniques have never worked well together. Overcoming this challenge, “Design for Hybrid Agile Adoption (DH2A)”, is a methodology defined to successfully execute Agile projects in a distributed and out-sourced environment. This article provides an overview of DH2A.
