There is a lot of confusion about what Kanban is!

Some of this is due to the fact that many people who have never used Kanban have been deriding it – saying it is a mechanistic team management method that doesn’t respect people.

The fact that Kanban is quickly growing and gaining a reputation for success where other Agile methods have had challenges belies that categorization.

But what is Kanban?

Even when listening to Kanban thought leaders one will hear different answers:

  1. It’s a power agile management system based on lean-flow.
  2. It’s a transition management method to assist teams to achieve continuous learning.
  3. It’s a way to create visibility for executives to improve their product portfolio management.

This talk discusses how Kanban actually is a multi-faceted method that assists process, transition and collaboration.

Kanban is not a mere tool, or even a set of practices. It’s a mindset that attends to people, their culture, and the systems they find themselves working in.

The talk presents a few of the basics of Lean-Flow and theory of constraints that it is based on as well as some of the psychological aspects of people adopting new methods.

While this talk is intended for those considering adopting Kanban, those currently using Scrum will find it helpful as many of the principles and practices of Kanban fit well into the Scrum framework.

Manufacturers have known for decades the importance of continually improving processes to improve quality and reduce costs and Lean has been a powerful management tool to achieve these goals.

But Lean, which focuses on delivering value in the eyes of customer, is also an effective way of improving overall business performance when applied to processes outside of the manufacturing arena.

The question is, how can you wield it most effectively in non-traditional areas?

Learn to:

  • Recognize the common gaps in the manufacturing process and how you can fill them in
  • Understand new and more effective ways that Lean tools can be applied outside of manufacturing all the way to your customer and everything in between (service, distribution, etc.)
  • Explore ways that you can apply these concepts to your organization

Everybody knows DevOps Is About
Bringing Dev & Ops Together

But DevOps is also about understanding value, fast delivery, automation, quality, and tuning complex adaptive systems in a way that optimizes the whole.

In The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win  there are a lot of parallels drawn between the world of mass manufacturing and IT engineering. But even though it’s a fantastic book, Gene Kim and his co-authors only scratch the surface of these parallels.

If we are actually going to apply them, we need more. The total quality revolution of manufacturing offers more lessons for IT engineering teams than most of us realize…way more than the taste we get in The Phoenix Project would suggest.

Join Chris Knotts, PMP – (LinkedIn profile) and learn the lessons can be summed up in one word: Lean.

CIOs and IT leaders in regions and industries that are struggling economically are being told to cut the IT budget by 15%, but still get critical digital business initiatives implemented.

Accelerating the move to enterprise agile is a high-risk, but high-reward, way to do both.

Discussion Topics:

  • How to use headcount reductions as a “burning platform” to accelerate an enterprise agile transformation
  • How to redeploy IT positions into agile teams
  • How to trim the scope of every delivery to the smallest change that provides business value
