Agile Development Frameworks: The Lean Framework
A 59 Seconds Agile Article
The foundational idea of lean frameworks are to improve every aspect of the development process while getting rid of anything that doesn’t add value for the customer. Previously in your company, the reviews your products were getting when they were released weren’t very good.
After implementing lean, the customers were brought into the development process so that they could give feedback about what does and doesn’t work for them. This helps the development team find problems that need to be solved in order to have a successful launch.
Lean Technology and the Development Team
The whole team knows that they should make sure every problem is solved as it’s found, so that a working product is delivered after each iteration of work. And because your work is broken up into iterations, it’s easier to track how the project is progressing and monitor its success. This helps you figure out where your project might be getting hung up and remove the obstacles that may be slowing or preventing development.
Something else that helps get your product to the market faster is setting priorities depending on the business value. When you built your products before, you incorporated every single aspect that was chosen at the beginning of development, but you found that your customers didn’t need or use a lot of them.
Lean Technology Priorities
With lean technology, you set priorities at the beginning of the product development so that you build the most important aspects first. This also allows your team to showcase what they’re good at, because they have more room to be creative. This raises team morale overall as well as improving the product quality.

User Stories Applied
A 59 Seconds Agile Book Review
User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn is one of our favourite books on Agile User Stories. The book starts with an overview into user stories, and details what a user story is and the different aspects of them. He then discusses how to go about writing a user story, and provides details of the INVEST criteria that can be used to determine if the story is meeting all of its objectives. Next Mike gives an in depth discussion of who user stories are written for and where to begin when gathering the details for them. The book then discusses acceptance testing user stories, including how to go about specifying these criteria and the responsibilities of the development team and customers during this process.
