Agile software development changed the way the software development is perceived today. The journey continues now in the new era where the software business meets software practice in a novel way. We are proud to present you the International Conference on Lean Enterprise Software and Systems (LESS).
The journey starts from Helsinki, Finland in October 2010. LESS is organized in collaboration with the Lean Software and Systems Consortium (LeanSSC).
LESS is a new conference in the field of software engineering and software business. It appreciates the cross-disciplinary nature of our field and therefore joins three strong communities together to form a platform for innovative ideas and future developments. We foster the interaction by joining agile software development experts with the well developed lean product development community coupled with innovative ideas nurtured by the beyond budgeting school of thought. All these communities are supported by well-defined educational tracks to involve the university lecturers deeply in the network where future software engineering and business managers are educated.
We welcome you to be part of this exciting and growing community of impacting the future of software business and practice!
The LESS 2010 will have three key tracks – Scaling up agile software to the lean organization, Lean product development and innovation, and Beyond Budgeting. You are invited to submit the papers addressing contemporary issues emerging in the specific or intersection of the proposed areas. Both, papers reporting completed research results and industrial experiences are welcome. Invited are original submissions on the topics including, but not limited to:
* Lean software development
* Lean practices for software
