Introducing Kanban for Software
Phil Cave is a new consultant with Net Objectives. Phil has a long history with Lean, XP, Scrum, and Kanban. He has worked at all levels: developer, lead, manager, division manager, vice-president, Lean coach. Phil just got back from Krackow, teaching our Lean Software Development course. Half of this course involved helping them integrate the Kanban technique into their Lean-Agile software methodology. Kanban is gaining ground as an important technique for Lean-Agile groups because it is widely applicable in both process-oriented and specialty-oriented shops. It does not require fundamental shifts in work (unlike other Agile methods) if that is not appropriate for you. It is something we need to learn more about.
