Introduction to Kanban for Software Development

Introduction to Kanban for Software Development

July 17, 2012

Learn what Kanban is, what it isn’t, and how to apply it to an IT or software development project. Kanban focuses on the flow of work through a system. It’s a useful tool to visualize the work and the problems that impact flow. It supports evolutionary process improvement and helps control the amount of work in process. Being less prescriptive than many SW Dev methods, it can be used more naturally, that is without shocking the system as it is being adopted. This will be an informal and interactive session with lots of time for Q&A. Time permitting, we’ll touch on pull systems, metrics, value stream mapping, the Theory of Constraints and the Scientific Method.
