About this Case Study

At this point in agile's lifecycle, many teams have switched to using a kanban board. Some are simple, 3-column trackers; others are considerably more involved. Yet many teams don't know how to stop for a moment and listen to their board. It's gently trying to nudge them about the changes that it needs to make them a better team. Come along and learn how we can go from simple to just complicated enough, smoothly.

In a new team, we started with a 3-column standard to something that fits us perfectly. Our board won't work for you, but by learning how, when and why we made our changes, you can make a board that works perfectly for your team too. See the patterns and anti-patterns; listen to the change that your board is crying out for - and enjoy the results.

About the Speaker

Gary is an agile provocateur, software nomad and lean mercenary. His main hobby is to try and help companies to build better software in better ways. Sometimes this is by helping them with the messy human communication side of agile, and sometimes it's through teaching better software crafting practices - but it's usually at least some of each. Coaching, mentoring, writing and showing; whatever helps in the context. You'll find him at various local meetups trying to both share what he knows and learn from his peers.
