Kanban Day May 7th Presentation:

Not Just Fun and Games Building the Mousebreaker Web Site

Abstract

IPC Media is a leading consumer magazine publisher and part of the Time Warner group. Almost two in every three UK women and 44% of UK men read an IPC magazine.

In the summer of 2008 IPC purchased the popular games web site Mousebreaker (www.mousebreaker.com), the aim being to build upon the excellent reputation for high quality games and to package it in a more engaging web site which could offer a wide range of commercial advertising opportunities.

Having purchased Mousebreaker, speed to market was of the essence. The web site replacement project therefore had extremely exacting, immoveable timescales and board level visibility. Rob Hathaway, a senior consultant at IndigoBlue (www.indigoblue.co.uk) will present his experience of managing the project using a Kanban process. He will discuss the challenges, the success that Kanban delivered and its subsequent impact within the organisation.
