#LeanIT2013 Interview Series : Lean and Agile with Hakan Forss

Hakan Forss is Lean and Agile coach at Avega Group. Hakan is one of the many Agile coaches that, while digging deeper into agile practices, has reached the shores of Lean, what he calls the fountain of knowledge. In this short video interview he shares his insights on how lean can help improving agile teams.

His Lean IT Summit presentation this year on how to apply Toyota Kata principles to agile teams has been very inspiring as he offers a lean approach to agile continuous improvement. While doing so, he brings lean deep thinking to agile practitioners and he builds another bridge between the two approaches. (Refer to #hypertextual Toyota Kata book review for more information of what the principle is).

Hakan has been kind enough to allow us some time to discuss his journey, how to articulate agile and lean and how Legos can help in building great slidedecks. Many thanks to him for the conversation, to Camille Brunat for directing and editing the videos, to Florence Préault, for coordinating this interview series project, and to Supernormal for the music.
