What is a LSD model? Did you mean LSD methodology?

I've only dealt with scrum, not lean so take my comments with a large grain of salt.

The goal of lean is to eliminate waste. If you are assembling documentation for the sake of documentation or for the sake of being able to report up the management chain, then that is waste. If documentation is being produced to either help the end user use the product, or help future developers understand how the product works and how it is put together, then it is not waste. The mere fact that you are asking what documentation you need means that you don't know enough about what you need to satisfy your customer and what you need to sustain your engineering, and that you are very likely going to produce documentation that is not going to be of value -- and therefore waste.

How will have a way of knowing what kind of methodology is better for you if don't know your work style, what you are trying to do, how many code monkeys you have working with you and their work styles, etc.?

Personally, I like scrum because it fits my work style. I like the idea of having sprints and a burndown chart. If somebody wants a status report I tell them that we are doing scrum so eff off. If they really want to know how the project is going, I tell them to listen in on the scrum, look at the burndown chart hanging on the wall and the bug database, and make their own assessment of how the project is going.
