Kanban is a tool that packs a punch! A simple mechanism for synchronising work activities, it gives us a holistic view of the end to end process and were we can improve. It focuses our attention on the flow of work, enables a pull rather than push environment and can drive radical cultural and organisational changes to enable collaboration. Often used alongside or instead of frameworks like Scrum, it has become a valuable addition to our agile toolbox.
In this presentation I’ll start with a simple exercise to illustrate the basic concepts of flow and how they alter our approach to managing our work – I’m hoping this will drive a lot of interesting discussions on how you might apply Kanban in your environment.
