Lean Software Development
Definition - What does Lean Software Development mean?
Techopedia explains Lean Software Development
In lean software development, various goals apply, including how to:
- Eliminate waste
- Amplify learning
- Deliver as early and fast as possible
- Empower people
- Assess project integrity
- Look at the project comprehensively
Many of these broad goals are expressed in the form of specific efforts. For example, eliminating waste comes in many forms, from creating smarter development modules to finding new ways of writing code. In general, lean software development has merged with another philosophy called "agile software development," which governs the ways that programmers and designers work together, and provides helpful guidelines and frameworks for software development as a whole.
