3 simple rules of Kanban
There seems to be infinite documentation on how to manage projects and programs and yet according to the Standish report only 32% of projects are successful. Thus the evolution of the Agile & Lean approach to software development, ITO, DevOps et al. People are looking for a better way to get things done. Extrapolating from intensive micromanagement through lighter and lighter project management approaches one arrives at the minimum viable process set. Sound scary? In a different way than you expect.
3 simple rules are all you need to get started. 3? just 3? Yes!
- Visualize the work flow
- Limit work in progress
- Measure and improve throughput
That’s it? Yes. that is all you need to get started.
Kanban, simple eh? Must be easy…well that is another story…
