Practical Steps Towards Diversity

With the increased attention on creating supportive representation spaces, diversity has become a shared goal for most developer communities. But little on how individuals and orgs can act to diversify existing structures has been mapped out. This talk will focus on low impact ways that individuals, groups and organisations can work to foster long and short term diversity.

Most teams are now using some flavour of Agile or Lean Production such as Scrum, Extreme Programming and many more.
However most people and companies don't know why we are using these methodologies, where they came from and what they are trying to achieve. 

Zan's interactive, hands-on talk will explore the origins of the Agile & Lean Production and its core concepts such as Continuous flow, Theory of Constraints and Pull Systems. 

Lean Production has completely changed the car manufacturing industry and now it's changing the software development industry, let's find out why.
