3 Simple Rules

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!
 
  1. Visualize the work flow 
  2. Limit work in progress 
  3. 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…
