If everyone on an Agile development team works at his or her top capacity, does that guarantee maximum throughput? Let's find out.<br/><br/> In this interactive, hands-on workshop we'll discover how to optimize the effectiveness of the team as a whole. We'll work together to simulate a manufacturing assembly line under various conditions and measure our results to see what works best.<br/><br/> We'll also discover and discuss how the assembly-line analogy applies to software development, and how slowing down certain portions of the development process can have a direct, positive impact on the bottom line.<br/><br/>
