This new community is broad-based, open-minded, innovative, and yet respectful of the many contributions others have made
Carmel, IN (PRWEB) March 11, 2011
The Lean Software and Systems Consortium (LeanSSC) and the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) formally announce their technical cooperation for the upcoming Lean Software & Systems Conference 2011 (LSSC11) May 3-6, 2011, in Long Beach, CA. Dr. Paul Nielsen, Director and CEO of the SEI, and . Anita Carleton, Director, Software Engineering Process Management Program, will deliver keynote addresses at LSSC11. Dr. Nielsen and Ms. Carleton join other leading industry experts including Chet Richards, and David Snowden who will also deliver keynote presentations.
The final day of LSSC11, May 6, will be presented in cooperation with the SEI, and all content that day will be relevant to areas of active research by the SEI. The track topics for this day include risk, CMMI®, and system design. The entire conference will include sessions on topics of interest to the SEI community such as systems engineering, Lean product development, and process improvement. On May 3, pre-conference tutorials will be offered by speakers such as Dave Snowden and Chet Richards presenting models like Cynefin and OODA loop and maneuver warfare.
David J. Anderson, conference chair and Vice President of the LeanSSC said, “I’m thrilled to be working with the SEI. We’re building a new community in our industry under the umbrella topic of Lean. This new community is broad-based, open-minded, innovative, and yet respectful of the many contributions others have made. The theme of this year’s conference is synthesis of other models, going beyond Lean, to include emergence and complexity science, theory of constraints, maneuver warfare and the many contributions the SEI has made such as CMMI and the understanding of organizational maturity and quality.”
Paul Nielsen, Director and CEO of the SEI, said, “I am very excited about the opportunity to present a keynote at the LSSC 2011 conference. I am well aware of Lean principles and the powerful results Lean thinking can bring to software and system development. I am especially excited about how Lean can work with other process improvement methodologies to tame the growing complexity we see in software intensive systems.”
“Lean and Agile methods are among the most popular software development methods today,” said Anita Carleton, Director, SEI Software Engineering Process Management Program. “While we are seeing a pro-Lean subculture emerging in the community, some of the issues to consider include how to balance agility and discipline in large complex system development settings. I look forward to the opportunity of participating in this year’s Lean Software & Systems Conference to discuss these ideas.”
