This presentation was given at the Lean Software and Systems Conference 2012 (LSSC12).
Many teams, individuals and organisations are delivering projects - or at least they think they do! In reality most of them are developing products, i.e. web services or inhouse applications. The whole concept of project development was useful some years ago - as our industries were unable to lower transaction costs and release frequently. Nowadays not only do we have the technical possibilities for continuous delivery; In addition Kanban provides us with the right framework to spot and manage buffers and to make good decisions regarding the correct batch size.
This talk will show the differences between thinking in projects vs. thinking in products and the benefits that arise from switching to the latter.
