Kanban Day May 7th:

A Leaner Form of Agility


When is Kanban likely to succeed? How do we introduce it? How does the quest to reduce waste and improve continuously changed tried-and-true XP practices? In this talk, I’ll share my experiences and experiments with Kanban and Lean at Xclaim Software and VersionOne. Among other things we’ll look at how the “day of planning/review/demo” can be whittled down in high-functioning teams, how the desire to release atomic features changes practices like source control and continuous integration, and some of the challenges in transitioning from the small-batch style of work to a true pull system.
