This session walk you through charts from real Kanban teams asking “what should be happening”?
This presentation reviews the top 10 myths and misconceptions, along with a few neglected and important principles of Lean thinking that many in software development, including Kanban practitioners, neglect. I first learned about a Kanban approach to development from an apologetic agile practitioner concerned that they’d broken “the rules.” Although it’s common practice, fixed time-boxes aren’t a required strategy for agile development. Since Kanban’s broad adoption, I’ve continued to encounter a number of myths and misconceptions both for and against Kanban.
As a full-service online-agency e-netconsulting KG ist specialized in technically sophisticated web- and mobile-solutions. Aiming for improvement of internal processes Kanban soon appeared as a suitable method. Kanban enables us to model the entire value-added-chain .

In any SOA, MIC can provide answers to difficult questions like: How are services properly designed? What Ãs the appropriate level of granularity for those services? Basic MIC techniques will be discussed and how to break a Color Model into discrete, loosely coupled components will be examined. How to convert the componentized model into XML schema and into XML …
This session describes how Lean Production and Kanban has been applied to game development. Lean principles and Kanban tools have been used by a number of developers, including the presenter, to slash production costs by over 50%. As a complement, or replacement, to Scrum, Lean/Kanban provides predictability, transparency and optimization for complex game production.
