  • 1. Implementing Scrumban- Story so far
    May 21st ,2011- Scrum Bangalore “PechaKucha” Presentation
    By Nitin Ramrakhyani, Sr. Product Manager, Digite Inc.
  • 2. Background Context
    Digite Inc, valley based product company, pioneer in Web-based Collaborative Products/ Solutions for Geographically Distributed Teams
    Over 75 customers/ 250,000 users in North America, Europe, Asia/ Pacific.
    Two products, Quarterly releases
    30+ dev team size, 5-8 QA, 1 PO, distributed across three locations.
  • 3. What we did earlier?
  • 4. Challenges
    High Impact Analysis
    Increasing Defect rate
    Increasing Competition
    Complex Requirements
  • 5. Enter Scrum
    ImgSrc: Scrum Primer by Pete Deemer
  • 6. How much we Scrummed?
    Release Planning – Backlog Prioritization, estimation
    Multiple iterations in each release
    Iteration demos
    Feature Teams – For better impact analysis
    Early QA involvement
    Increased Automation, Daily builds
    Daily scrums
    Retrospectives
  • 7. What Worked, for us ?
    Iteration demos – Early feedback, to make early correction
    Early involvement of QA
    Feature teams
    Retrospectives, allowing team to reflect and make improvements.
    Lead to lower defect rate, better quality….more happiness. 
  • 8. What didn’t work, for us?
    Daily scrum  Weekly Status Calls
    Still needed Usecases, stories couldn’t help.
    Interruptions threw off Iteration plans, often.
    Tough to do iteration planning multiple times, gather all stakeholders.
    Backlog changes within a sprint not allowed in scrum, but needed for business.
    Needed quicker defect-fix deployment, hence Release(minor or Hotfix as we call) WITHIN Iterations
  • 9. What next?
  • 10. Enter Kanban
    Derived from the combination of two Japanese words, kan ("visual") and ban ("card" or "board"), kanban roughly translates to sign board or signal board. 
  • 11. Kanban Introduction – Key Principles
    Visualize your Work
    Limit Work in Process (WIP)
    Remove bottlenecks and improve the flow
    Increase throughput
  • 12. Kanban Introduction
  • 13. Who doesn’t like cocktails?
    Scrum + Kanban = Scrumban
  • 14. Shaken, not Stirred….Our mix
    Scrum
    Release Planning – remained same at high level
    Iteration Planning and fixed iteration scope
    Daily Standup - within smaller teams
    Retrospectives
    Agile Engg practices – daily builds, test automation etc.
    Kanban
    Work Visualization ( different than Agile task boards)
    WIP Limits, to discourage multi-tasking
    Test as soon as “done”
    Dealing with bottlenecks asap
    Focus on smooth “flow”
  • 15. Visibility Was the Key
  • 16. Late Scope Additions - Allowed
  • 17. What we measure?
  • 18. Benefits
    Better/ “Value” delivery
    Can make releases “Whenever(almost, bug-fixes mainly)
    Much better visibility
    Happy customers/ users. 
  • 19. Recommendation
    Make your own Cocktails(or Mocktails)….
