Agile Mëtteg - 22 September 2011.
In Luxembourg we see many IT teams that are struggling to respond to new business requests while supporting existing systems. Without a proper management framework and clearly defined objectives, this can lead to misunderstanding between business and IT, and eventually disappointment and distrust.
In the past few years a new approach has emerged within the Lean/Agile community: Kanban for software development. This method differentiates from most other Agile approaches as it is not iterative but based on a continuous flow managed with a pull system.
During this session you will discover the Kanban Method and how to implement it for empowering your team for managing both software development projects and support activities, achieving better results and rebuilding trust with your business stakeholders.
