Interview with Don Reinertsen about Principles of Product Development Flow

Don Reinertsen, author of “Principles of Product Development Flow”, is interviewed by Jesper Boeg from Trifork. Don and Jesper talk about the impact of Dons book and the Toyota model and Lean in general.

They also discuss why we keep the batch budgeting, big bang releases, and fixed budget contracts, when we have been told from empirical studies in agile development and Dons own more scientific approach that this does not work. Is it because of our training and school systems? In the end of the interview, Jesper asks for the difference between TOC (Theory of Constraints) and Kanban, the conclusion is that for product development, Kanban is much more efficient. But hear it for yourself!
