    This workshop will help participants to understand how the Kanban method really works.

    We will learn how to use the Kanban method to visualize your current process ("start where you are"). Will figure out how to limit work in progress (WiP); define and make process policies explicit; measure and manage flow.

    Also we will figure out what does it mean to search for opportunities for continuous improvement. We will learn how to increase your team speed and at the same time decrease pressure at work.

    All of these we will touch through extremely hands-on step-by-step simulation using LEGO bricks.

    In this highly engaging workshop attendees will experience estimating, planning and delivering a new product and product features.  The uncertainty in value and costs will be resolved through rolling dice based on the stories that the team selects and prioritizes.   The teams will run through 3 iterations of story cost, value estimation, and product feature delivery.  Points will be scored for delivering product features and meeting release and iteration commitments. 

    Dealing with uncertainty is one of the largest challenges that teams face.  The simulation aims to have levels of uncertainty in value and delivery that are commensurate with those found in software development.  Some of the key tools for dealing with uncertainty are integrated into the simulation.  In particular, the simulation covers these 4 areas:

    • Value of Information
    • Value of Flexibility
    • Cost of Delay
    • Value of Uncertainty

    Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the challenges of working with uncertainty in software projects, and will learn some of the tools that are at their disposal for managing this uncertainty.

    In agile teams, three critical aspects of how individuals and interactions shape up are:

     

    1. Individual role / title

    2. Group / peer pressure

    3. Self Organization

     

    In this session, we shall simply play games to highlight the dysfunctions caused by traditional team structures, and facilitate the attendees into 'discovering' how agile practices help mitigate them
