Dean Leffingwell author of Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements Practices for Teams, Programs, and the Enterprise (Agile Software Development Series) was the guest on the Businss901 podcast. I talked to Dean so long that I divided the podcast into two parts. The 1st part, Lean Agile Software Train, part 1 published last Tuesday. That podcast is under thirty minutes and touches more upon Dean’s experience with organizations. The 2nd part below takes the deep dive into building the Lean Agile Software Enterprise.
