Durnall and Parkinson provide a thorough introduction to Lean principles, the idea of "Lean Thinking," and the application of those ideas to software development. IT is viewed as a system, a process, as well as a series of production steps and the presenters show how Lean ideas apply to and can improve each aspect.
