Practical Kanban: A Systemic Approach to Creating Value and Capability Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the most pragmatic and adaptable introduction to successfully implementing Kanban systems for software development. Leading Kanban/Agile/Lean consultant and coach Karl Scotland clearly explains Kanban's purpose, and identifies the key differences between Kanban and traditional development. Scotland moves on to introducing key Kanban concepts, and shows how those concepts can be applied in widely diverse organizations.

Building on Scotland's unique "Kanban, Flow, Cadence (KFC)" approach, Practical Kanban demonstrates how to chart your own consistent, evolutionary, and incremental path to success with Kanban. You'll learn how:

  • Kanban offers mechanisms to control workflow, manage inventory and investment, and identify bottlenecks.
  • Flow shows how to deliver actual value through Minimal Marketable Features (MMF)
  • Cadence gives the team the rhythm usually provided by time-boxed iterations

Drawing on Scotland's extensive "in the trenches" experience, Practical Kanban concludes with a full section on Kanban's context and implications, including case studies and techniques for getting started. From start to finish, this guide offers a lean perspective on software organizations and processes that is as actionable as it is insightful.
