This month, Troy Tuttle will lead the group in the Get KanBan game. This
game teaches the basics of KanBan and is a great way to introduce the
concepts of flow and WIP to your organization.
Kan Ban is a core tenant of Lean thinking. When organizations and
teams use it, they often realize a couple of benefits very quickly; the
visualization of flow and identification of bottlenecks in their
process. Some other aspects of lean thinking also help further the
benefits; cumulative flow diagrams and specialization vs.
Join us at this month's meeting to get a better understanding of these
concepts and how you might be able to recreate this discussion in your
organization by using the Get KanBan game.
Troy Tuttle is a Lean-Agile coach, software developer
