We are a small IT company developing a variety of IT products. I want to incorporate best practices into our product lifecycle management (PLM) process
I have used 5 Whys, 5 S, Kanban, JIT, Value Stream Mapping
This can be either adapted from a more "conventional" CM plan or written entirely from scratch. This question may be answered somewhere else in the Agile Forum and, if so, I would appreciate anyone sending me where such a plan may be found.
