Thursday 11 Dec, 14:00 - 17:00, Westminster
Some teams struggle to get buy-in to use Agile methods such as Scrum, or experience difficulty implementing the approaches successfully. This results in the teams being less effective or successful than they could be, and can give a poor impression of the benefits of Agile development. Kanban, Flow and Cadence (KFC) are three important Lean concepts which can be combined to generate a more pipeline-based approach to software development, as opposed to the more common timebox-based approaches used by more traditional Agile methods. Using Kanban, Flow and Cadence can smooth transitions to Agile development, or further improve the productivity of existing Agile implementations.
The presenter will describe his experiences implementing these ideas at Yahoo! and explain the concepts using examples, simulations and games, as well as encouraging group discussion.
This session will be relevant for anybody with some familiarity with Agile development, looking for new ideas which they might apply to their own environments.
An understanding of a different approach to Agile Software Development, along with some experience of how and why the might apply that with a team.
- Kanban is the mechanism which manages the workflow
- Flow is the approach to maximising value and minimising waste
- Cadence is the means to ensuring reliability and commitment.
