Update: Lean and Lego – Building the Millenium Falcon

Update: The talk went really well I’m pleased to say. I guess Lego and Star Wars really appeals to most geeks…

I’d like to say a big thank you to the organisers – a first event and an unquestionable success.

Upcoming talk: Lean and Lego – Building the Millenium Falcon
Location: Agile on the Beach – Cornwall
Dates: 15th – 16th September

I’m really pleased to be giving a talk on lean practices at the 2011 Agile on the beach conference. The talk is a slightly irreverent one, using our experiences at ThoughtWorks London of building the largest Lego set ever produced to introduce the ideas of self organisation, continuous improvement and lean practices. I’ll cover a bunch of more involved ideas from Lean too – cycle time and the like. I’m dead chuffed, as the speaker list is good and the location promises to be beautiful.

If you are interested in Agile Development or Software Engineering and live in the South West, or even want a break on the beach whilst seeing world class keynote speakers (not me) then come along – it should be fun.
