Lean Software Management BBC Worldwide Case Study is Published

I first knew David Joyce, a Systems Thinker and Agile practitioner, through the local Limited WIP Society user group in Melbourne and in more recent times I have had an opportunity to know and work with him.  David is one of those people who has a knack of explaining something that you can readily understand and comprehend.

David along with Peter Middleton have just published an IEEE paper, Lean Software Management: BBC Worldwide Case Study that contains anecdotal evidence over a 12-month period, lead time to deliver software improved by 37%, consistency of delivery rose by 47%, and defects reported by customers fell 24%.

These are impressive and enviable results.

David’s paper shows how the use of lean methods and thinking including visual management, team-based problem solving, smaller batch sizes, and statistical process control can improve software development.

Quote from David Joyce’s website –

I believe it will be one of the most significant papers in Software Engineering this decade.

– David Anderson

Great stuff David J !!!
