Hola Enrique. Te recomiendo que leas la guía de práctica ágil. La guía explica ágil contra sus orígenes Lean.
I would say Agile is the overarching approach that in a way includes Lean besides other frameworks. Lean is mostly concerned with Eliminating Waste & Improving Process Flow so it concentrates on the process itself.
The Venn diagram of Lean and Agile most definitely has an overlapping portion, and many of their people-oriented principles, values and philosophies are similar, but there are elements of each which are unique to themselves...
Many links here talk about Agile and Lean, here are a few that could be of interest
Leading Construction Industry to Lean-Agile (LeAgile) Project Management by Suhail Iqbal
Agile Sustainability: The Business Case for Lean, Agile and Green by Don Kim
also in the Blog The reluctant Agilist by Dave Prior a few more
or Episode 424: Lean-Agile PMO of Certification Insider by Cornelius Fichtner
Hope it helps in your quest
Hola Enrique. Aunque el enfoque ágil deriva la mayoría de sus principios de Lean Manufacturing ellas difieren un poco en cómo funcionan. Agile adopta un enfoque iterativo para satisfacer las necesidades del cliente al no comprometerse con el producto final hasta no tener las demandas de antemano. Lean se enfoca más en la satisfacción del cliente al identificar y eliminar cualquier actividad que consuma recursos innecesarios sin dar valor agregado. Existe mucha literatura para ahondar al respecto.
Most histories of the Agile movement show some roots in Lean thinking, especially with the Toyota Production System and their use of Kanban and Kaizen. The lessons of manufacturing had a significant influence on Agile software development. If a distinction must be made, I could argue that Lean is more rooted in manufacturing while Agile was born in Research & Development.
Of course, both have continued to evolve and expand, but you can still map their principles and practices to each other. At the very least, many coaches will assert that Lean and Agile are compatible.
Agile and Lean are TOTALY DIFFERENT. Is not right that Agile took Lean, totally wrong. In fact, Lean is flow based while Agile is not. While I was part of the genesis of Agile that was outside software and then I was part of software movement I prefer you go to the basement (see some links below).
It does not mean that one is better than other, In fact, including my actual work place, I was in charge to implement both and we are using both.
Most of the results deliverd into the place where Agile was born are here:
About the difference between Lean and Agile take a look here:
Lean gives you flexibility. Agile gives you agility. Both are different things because the second one is to be prepare and to generate unplanned events in the invironment.
What literature would you suggest?
