Stop Delivering Software

Abstract: 

Stop thinking about the process of writing software as a delivery process and start thinking of it as a problem-solving process, a creative process. Time and again we encounter software delivery organizations – IT departments operating as cost centers and software firms working under contract – whose job it is to turn someone else’s requirements into delivered software. Agile practices have helped these organizations handle requirements in smaller batches, reduce work-in-process, and speed up delivery. But unfortunately, agile practices do not address the underlying problem: The very idea of a software delivery organization is flawed.

Mary Poppendieck has been in the Information Technology industry for over thirty years. She has managed software development, supply chain management, manufacturing operations, and new product development. She spearheaded the implementation of a Just-in-Time system in a 3M video tape manufacturing plant and led new product development teams, commercializing products ranging from digital controllers to 3M Light Fiber™.
Mary is a popular writer and speaker, and coauthor of the book Lean Software Development, which was awarded the Software Development Productivity Award in 2004. A sequel, Implementing Lean Software Development, was published in 2006, and Leading Lean Software Development in 2009, and The Lean Mindset in 2013.

Tom Poppendieck has over 25 years of experience in computing including eight years of work with object technology. His modeling and mentoring skills are rooted in his experience as a physics professor. His early work was in IT infrastructure, product development, and manufacturing support, and evolved to consulting project assignments in healthcare, logistics, mortgage banking, and travel services.
Tom holds a PhD in Physics and has taught physics for ten years. He is coauthor of the book Lean Software Development, which was awarded the Software Development Productivity Award in 2004. A sequel, Implementing Lean Software Development, was published in 2006, and Leading Lean Software Development in 2009 and The Lean Mindset in 2013.
