Currently, the predominance of Agile frameworks in software development means that Lean applications in the IT
sector are incipient or very little known. However, several authors argue that the application of Lean in software has
more advantages than Agile could have, due to the scalability of the procedures. The objective of this research is to
know the state of the art of the application of Lean in software development through a systematic literature review.
After reviewing 19 articles, it was found that the most common Lean waste with the greatest impact on software
development is waiting. The main barriers that hinder the application of Lean correspond to attitudinal components
of people such as low understanding of Lean concepts. The most applied Lean tool is Kanban and the main advantage
of applying Lean in software development is the improvement of team performance.
