Lean Startup, Kanban and Continuous Delivery: practices and principles to create the ultimate value creation machine

by Barry O'Reilly

My presentation with Ian Carroll from our ThoughtWorks Quarterly Briefing where we shared our experiences of using Lean Startup, Kanban and Continuous Delivery practices and principles to support organisations in building their ultimate value creation machines.

Lean Startup Kanban Continuous Delivery

Overview

Startups. 4 people in a room changing the world. Fluid, optimised, responding dynamically to changes in the product based on detailed customer data to drive value and build their proposition. No bureaucracy, no waste just beauty.

Agile. 10 people in a room fighting an organisation. A system, bloated, ridged and wasteful. Challenging a business to change its perspective on product development and deliver amazing products.

While it sounds like Cinderella and the ugly sister, both have lessons to learn from one another. Principles are as important and useful in established companies as they are in the startup world. Lean Startup is not just about how we can create an amazing product – its about how we can learn from the results of our efforts to improve everything we do. Agile is an iterative and incremental approach to software development. Lean is a customer focused value creation process.

They are all ultimately searching for an answer to the question “How can we learn more quickly what works, and discard what does not to build ultimate product that our customers love?”
