KANBAN ROUNDUP - MAY 29, 2012

Yes - the name has been changed to reflect reality. The “Kanban Weekly Roundup” is the latest of our “Safe to Fail” experiments proving the overly ambitious weekly cadence was in need of adjustment.  Increased teaching and traveling this spring provoked a discussion resulting in a new name for this post - now simply called,  “Kanban Roundup”.  Hoping to post every other week for now.  Stay tuned!

Slides and videos from Lean Kanban Southern Europe in Madrid (May 9-10) are now available.  Check them out at http://lkse12.leanssc.org/media.htm.  I’m anxious to watch them all, but Oscar Garrido and Erika Weiss’s talk on “Kanban in Software Maintenance subjected to a Service Level Agreement” is a must watch asap to understand how 160 people supported 200 apps.

The new book by David Anderson “Lessons In Agile Management: On the Road to Kanban” is available.  The “pre-release early edition” that is.

A post via @thomasjeffrey on lessons from three pilot projects going through a lean transformation of a large organization.  Worth highlighting is the point that people can see where their position is in the project and their relationship between their tasks and other peoples tasks.
