Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit

  title={Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit},
  author={Mary Poppendieck and Tom Poppendieck},
From the Publisher: In Lean Software Development, Mary and Tom Poppendieck identify seven fundamental "lean" principles, adapt them for the world of software development, and show how they can serve as the foundation for agile development approaches that work. Along the way, they introduce 22 "thinking tools" that can help you customize the right agile practices for any environment. Better, cheaper, faster software development. You can have all three--if you adopt the same lean principles… 

Combining lean thinking and agile software development : how do software-intensive companies use them in practice?
