  • What to work on next 2.

    Right after I wrote about what to work on next, Cory Ladas wrote about the Perpetual Multivote.  Cory mentions a voting system that keeps the highest priority at the top of the your list.  Items in the list are time sensitvie, so at a predetermined level, older lower ranked items can drop off as new items are added.  I ...

  • Podcast with Mary and Tom Poppendieck from Hanselminutes

    Belated link, but here's a great podcast from Hanselminutes with an interview with Lean Software folks, Mary and Tom P.  I find it hard to believe that Scott has not encountered these concepts before, but maybe he's just playing devils advocate in the interview?  Scott, were these concepts new to you?

  • Kanban Retrospectives

    Wow, it's been a while since I blogged.  Summer is busy, busy, schockingly busy!  I wanted to mention the discussion we had recently on the kaban mailing list.  We talked about when a group using Kanban as their project management tool would conduct retrospectives.  There was talk about triggering it using ...

  • Kanban Backlog (Parking Lot) limits.

    I wanted to write an update about our change management system.  Now that we have a kanaban system driving our change process we are ready to limit certain parts of our current Kanban.  See this post for my earlier thoughts on what we would do.  That post was speculation on what we should implement.  We just decided ...

  • Lean Thinking in Software Engineering

    Interesting post over on the Lean Software Engineering blog, "There are no a priori best practices".  In a couple of sentences Corey lays out what I think being Lean is about.  What I get out of the 2 sentences are that you must ALWAYS improve.  You may be the best but that doesn't mean your software practices are the ...

  • Documenting Work Standards

    Corey Ladas has a post about document work standards.  This got me to thinking, how in our kanban we might document our work standards.  Our issue is that we are going all electronic.  We will have an overhead display to flash the kanban boards.  I had never thought about using information radiators for your standards in the ...

  • Making Kanban meetings more effective.

    I took a vacation down to my favortie city, Orlando!  Actually Lake Buena Vista FL, home of Walt Disney World!  So of course the week of Thanksgiving, I wasn't Kanbanning,  but visiting the parks at WDW.  I'm always impressed with how the Disney company can handle the amount of crowds that they do.  If ...

  • Our first Standup for Kanban

    I wanted to relate how the first standup we did for our Kanban was, and tell what worked and what didn't.  First as I mentioned in my previous post we are displaying our Kanban status board electronically.  This we need to work on.  Right now it only displays during the standup, then ...
