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. Using his unique "Kanban, Flow, Cadence (KFC)" approach, Scotland demonstrates how to chart your own consistent, evolutionary, and incremental path to success with Kanban. You'll learn how: * Kanbanoffers mechanisms to control workflow, manage inventory and investment, and identify bottlenecks. * Flowshows how to deliver actual value through Minimal Marketable Features (MMF) * Cadencegives the team the rhythm usually provided by time-boxed iterations Drawing on Scotland's extensive "in the trenches" experience, Practical Kanbanconcludes with a full section on Kanban's context and implications, including case studies and techniques for getting started.
