  • 2. kanban (little k); system of signaling for pulling items to be worked. Developed by Toyota. Simple pull system.
    David Anderson credited for defining Kanban (big K). Incorporates:
    • Maintains Pull
    • 3. Focus on Quality; Definition of Done!
    • 4. Theory of Constraints
    • 5. Explicit Policies
    • 6. Limiting Work-in-Progress
    • 7. Classes of Service
    • 8. Predictability via measurement
    • 9. measurement = lead time
    • 10. per class of service
    • 11. becomes your service level agreement
  • 12.

  • 16. So where does Trac fit?
  • 17. Kanban Board ≠ Issue Tracking
    (or does it?)
  • 18. Simple & easy
    Lots of plug-ins: visit track-hacks.org
    - Master Tickets – could be used to show
    ticket blockages
    - Custom fields
    - Typed ticket workflow
    - Notifications
    - Keywords
    - Metrics Plug-Ins (TracMetrix provides CFD for calculating Lead Time)
    Can be configured so that person moving a ticket to a state takes ownership.
    Ability to have pre- & post- hooks (e.g. prevent movement if blocked)

  • 20.
  • 21. When moving to the next state,
    that person moving it takes
    ownership.
  • 22. 1st Attempt at Virtualizingthe Kanban

  • 24. Work-in-Progress states at top
    WIP Limit static text, use count of tickets as a comparison
