Recommended Meetup: Kanban 101 with Mr Kanban, David J Anderson

Our friends at Dublin Lean Coffee are hosting the brilliant David J Anderson, creator of Kanban, on Thursday, February 18th at 19:00. This is a rare opportunity to hear from the source what a modern method such as Kanban actually is.

More Info:

What is Kanban? Is it Scrum without timeboxes? Is it simply a replacement for the to-do list? Is it a “waterfall” process, which has nothing Agile about it? There have been many attempted definitions through the years.

None of them is really true.

Kanban is a method for defining, managing and improving services delivering knowledge work, such as professional services, creative industries and the design of physical and software products. An alternative path to agility, really.

That definition belongs to David J Anderson, the creator of Kanban. And he is coming to Dublin to tell us all about it!

David will share with you what lays beyond that one sentence definition and explain how bringing transparency to your teams and organisations can enable immense improvements.

Are there any blockers to my progress? This format generally works very well the Scrum team... read more

Why and when to use #NoEstimates

There has been a huge amount of debate recently about the value of estimates, particularly with the surge of the #NoEstimates movement. Are estimates waste? Line number 1 of the Agile Manifesto is way too often overlooked, in favour of diving straight into the 4 values and 12 principles. Line #1 tells us… “We are uncovering better ways of developing... read more

Go beyond Retrospectives with Kanban Kata

Having being inspired by Jimmy Janlén’s post on Improvement Themes about a year ago, I went about putting it into practice with my Kanban team. Håkan Forss gave a great presentation on Toyota Kata, which explains the wider concept of Kata well, whilst Jimmy’s adaptation is a simpler Kata format which you can try out of the box. Without a doubt, I... read more
