Does it seem like your dev team is bogged down in process and can't get the ball across the goal line? If you're looking to streamline the development pipeline, Kanban—quickly becoming a standard tool in the agile toolbox—can help you. This first event in our "ALM Wednesdays" series of Jump Starts goes in depth to show you how Kanban is much more than a board with columns and stickies. Join experts Steven Borg and Cheryl Hammond as they show you, in very practical ways, how to move beyond boards to see how Kanban can help focus your teams on the flow of value to your customers, help you identify and remove bottlenecks in your development pipeline, and most importantly, shift your organizational culture toward creative problem-solving at all levels.
Kanban is well-suited for teams in all phases of lean/agile transition, whether just starting out or looking for even greater improvements on top of an established methodology.
The fundamentals of Kanban are easy to understand, but don't underestimate the challenge—or the potential—of really putting them into practice. Too many teams build elaborate boards, and not much more, and end up wondering what all the fuss was about. We'll push you to rethink your assumptions and your mindset every step of the way, enabling you to realize the true promise of a Kanban adoption: empowering your teams for self-sustaining continuous improvement.
