Introduction to Lean / Kanban Software Development
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT THAT MAKES SENSE
Lean Principles create flexible processes that change with context. Customers, technology, funding, and staff change, our plans should easily change with them.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Real World Lean
"Your courses teach the "Why", we have had enough "How": Aki Namioka, Marchex
An Intensive Courses on the Basics - Half, Full, and Two Day Versions
If you don't know why you are doing something, you won't know if it is working or not.
Lean Metric Generation
Someone else's metrics probably won't work for you. In fact, they are often misleading and dangerous. Learn how to devise metrics that help prove hypotheses for real continuous improvement.
Kanban and Personal Kanban
The basic structure of lean software development. Visualize work, see flow, collaborate, recognize bottlenecks and constraints as they happen, run experiments to build better products and processes, and limit work-in-progress to reasonalble levels.
Continuous Improvement (Kaizen)
Kaizen is continuous improvement. The goal of any Lean implementation is teams that truly self organize, understand their work, and notice and act on the need for process improvement (well before a retrospective). You will learn problem solving methods, as well as mechanisms to spot and solve problems when they are relatively easy to cure.
