LEAN & AGILE PROJECTS? Classic project management is push, the Project Manager assigns tasks. Scrum has way fever rules and is mid-way between push andpull: The Product Owner adds tasks freely to a backlog, then the team discuss the backlog of tasks, chooses a few that the team can do in a speciﬁc time frame.Kanban has even fever rules and is pure pull: The Project Leadmoves tasks from backlog to Todo List where Team Members can pick up a task to do it when ready.
COMBINE The following example uses Thingamy’s process engine:Starts with the Kanban method of pure pull and Todo List limit(this adds natural prioritizing without overwhelming the Team).Adds Scrum type Tasks discussions among the Team Members,Then puts it all into a proper process engine for fewest possibleglitches, delivery of all pertinent information with each Task, and full capture of all for real accountability.
