Organizations that want to compete effectively should embrace lean principles. Why? Because the lean model calls for rapid iteration and quick release cycles, and it's as relevant to software delivery today as it was to auto manufacturing in the 20th century.

Traditionally, both auto manufacturing and software production optimize for three outcomes: cost, speed and quality. So it makes sense that lean practices would apply to software production: you can reduce costs, gain agility and generate business value faster.

Puppet sponsored an infographic to explore the connections between auto manufacturing and software delivery. See it below for a recap of lessons learned from lean manufacturing, including how DevOps practices and continuous delivery can improve organizational performance, productivity and profitability.
