Among the most vexing issues facing new product developers today are the complexities caused by the growing requirement to integrate hardware and software design — and the ever-increasing need for more robust collaboration across multi-disciplinary teams to achieve it.
In this enhanced version of a recent LEI webinar, John Drogosz, lean product and process development (LPPD) coach, takes a detailed look at Agile and LPPD, two leading development methodologies that teams can use to meet this challenge. In addition, he offers insights and advice that will help development teams determine the most effective method for managing a new product or service’s creation, launch, and delivery for their specific situation.
Lean Product and Process Development vs. Agile.
|Lean Product and Process Development||Agile|
|1||Focuses on creating new customer value||Focuses on execution speed of predetermined customer value|
|2||Aims to shorten overall time-to-market for a product/service||Aims to reduce lead time for a component of a product/service|
|3||Considers entire value stream of product/service from design to maintenance following delivery||Considers delivery of a component of a product/service|
|4||Strives to execute with speed and precision||Strives to execute with speed|
|5||Synchronizes flow across multi-disciplinary functions||Optimizes flow for a single software team|
