Tomorrow evening I’ll be at The Bay Area Lean Software Development User Group meetup facilitating a cool simulation that I learned from Steve Bockman.
We’re going to launch a fictitious aerospace company, build
and ship product, and track our financials to see how we are doing. We will apply the “Five Focusing Steps” from the Theory of Constraints, as well as other lean and agile practices to evolve and improve our operation and ultimately our
profitability. We’ll explore several
approaches to optimizing multi-stage processes and engage in some team problem
solving. There will be lots of paper airplanes, and a lot of fun.
The event is free, and hosted by Runa Corporation . Get all of the details at the group’s meetup page.
