PMBoK AGP - Agile Practice Guide addendum, describes Lean as an umbrella term for Agile and Kanban, Agile as an umbrella term for Scrum, XP and many others.
I can write about it because I was part of the team where Agile was born inside the USA DoD/NSF Agility Forum, Leihigh University, 1990. Agile was born as an alternatve to Lean when inside the forum a prospective analysis was made about how the world would be in 2015-2030 and it was noticed that Lean would not be enough to face the future challenges. Both are totally different in the basement, in the foundation. But here comes a reference: http://www.parshift.com/s/140106Technion-AgileVsLeanSE.pdf. What the PMBoK AGP stated is totally wrong, unfortunatelly.
I hoped you would chime in with your background.
Wonder if they change the description in PMBoK 7.
And wonder how it got in there in the first place.
Maybe because of the plethora of agile gurus in this area.
Lean thinking originated from the work of Taiichi Ohno at Toyota and spread from manufacturing to multiple domains. A number of the principles underlying lean and agile are similar such as empowerment of those who do the work, the need for management to create an environment/system to enable teams to succeed, visualizing and encouraging flow of work and so on.
Amazing resource, @Sergio. Many thanks. This explains lots.
