Tom and Mary Poppendieck -- the creators of Lean, and Agile legends in their own lifetime -- make a popular return to Skills Matter this September with their Lean Software Development Leaders Workshop.

In this workshop, Tom and Mary present an alternate framework for thinking about developing software-intensive systems - one based on Lean principles and the thinking of W. Edwards Deming.

Software is the heart and soul of a vast number of products and business processes; every year the ability to develop robust software systems quickly and reliably becomes more critical to the world economy. And yet, most companies use software development processes that were born when systems were coded in assembly language and computer hardware was more expensive than programmers' salaries.

Today we have pervasive internet, omnipresent social media, big data, and massively scalable hardware. These advances have flourished largely outside the realm of traditional software development practices, and they call into question the conventional wisdom of what it means to develop, scale, and maintain excellent software-intensive systems.

It's time to re-think our approach to software development processes, our perception of the people who create software, and our governance systems.
