Kanban

Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for Your Technology Business by David Anderson – David is the source and principle advocate of software development kanban. Similarly, David has been a strong denouncer of Scrum indicating that it has induced waste and artificial time boxes which can be addressed through the flow of kanban. What amazed us in reading his books, and attending his kanban leadership workshops, is the focus and emphasis on the importance of cadence. Even within kanban, there are multiple cadences which drive product direction, program review, and operational effectiveness. And while he does not dictate cadence durations, you can see many similarities in this cadence to the rhythm of the Scrum sprint cycle. Read for yourself and let us know what you think.
