I am passionate about kanban because without a lot of ceremony and time, I can get a team to self organize and communicating at a whole new level. Since constraints become visible, it allows people to be more willing to go out of their comfort zone and thus wear any hat that it takes to produce quality software. Seeing constraints, pulling value and eliminating waste is the goal of practicing kanban. This would be a "kanban explained" session for those who are not familiar with this practice. I use physical boards to illustrate the concepts and encourage good dialogue. We will discuss several types of kanban boards such as WIP, backlog and retrospectives.

This presentation has been tested at many user group meetings, at clients and conferences such as Agile 2009 & CodeMash 2010. The session takes 1 hour to present, 1 1/2 hours to have good dialogue during the presentation.

Kanban, while not a new concept, nor complex - it is often misunderstood by those who don't practice it. Intended audience is for people that understand agile story wall concepts and whole team. The best audience is a Scrum master who will learn how kanban can take their craft to the next level of a self organizing teams by seeing, not hearing about constraints.

  • exuma Exuma Technologies (DockMaster/RVMaster) at Exuma Technologies (DockMaster/RVMaster) Thanks for the slides. We've been using Trello for about 6-months now. It's had strong adoption in our Dev group, but weak adoption across other departments. The problem is that the value of Kanban was never communicated to the team. Thank you for sharing as this will help spread the word. 1 year ago
