Taiichi Ohno, inventor of the Toyota Production System, made a significant statement about the goals of his system. We have taken that vision and we are applying it to software development.
"All we are doing is looking at the time line, from the moment we qualify a business requirement to the point when the intended users are receiving value from the feature(s). And we are reducing the time line by reducing the non-value adding wastes."
Seed Software paraphrase of Taiichi Ohno.
