Kanban is not a framework

Kanban is not a framework | kanban | Scoop.it

Recently, I hear some people familiar with Scrum compare it with Kanban by saying that “Kanban is also a framework” or that “Kanban offers an alternative framework.”

I know several leaders in the Scrum community promote Scrum as a framework, and while I might debate that appraisal I’m happy to accept it for the purposes of this post.

I do, however, want to take issue with those who propose that “Kanban is a framework.” Kanban is not a framework! It is a process to catalyze evolutionary change! It is a change management process. Arguably, it is currently the _only_ Agile change management process.

My Name is Justin - Justin Time

My Name is Justin - Justin Time | kanban | Scoop.it

In October 2011 I had the idea of giving a talk about the advantages of WIP limitation. The whole talk should be told as a story and all slides should be cartoons. The opportunity came in the shape of the conference Lean Kanban Benelux. The talk was videotaped, so you can watch the video if you would like to.

Visualising Kanban Dimensions with TIPs

Visualising Kanban Dimensions with TIPs | kanban | Scoop.it

Following on from my post describing a Kanban Visualisation TIP (Token, Inscription, Placement), this post gives some examples of how to visualise the various dimensions of a Kanban Multiverse.

 

The goal is not to define any ‘correct’ ways of visualising information, but to show that there are a variety of useful approaches and hopefully inspire further new creative approaches. As such, I have listed at least 3 techniques for each approach and tried to include some variety.

Kanban and When Will This Be Done?

Kanban and When Will This Be Done? | kanban | Scoop.it

A question that comes up a lot in Kanban is, “How can I know when this feature will be done?”. First off, it is important to understand what makes estimating unpredictable – and then what steps Kanban presents to address this.

 

Estimates are unreliable because the inherent variability work is compounded by the lack of flow in most teams and destructive behavior caused by fixed point estimates.

 

Kanban, through a few simple techniques, a little bit of math, and the decoupling of planning and scheduling will give you the ability establish accurate estimates with minimal effort.

How does Kanban fit a complex domain? by Yuval Yeret

Depending on who you listen to, you might get the idea that a Kanban system might be great for simple problems, or even complicated ones, but when the going gets tough and a complex problem needs to be solved, you need something like Scrum.

 

I don’t know if those making these statements really mean them or are using them as FUD to try to protect the Scrum brand. I am trying to figure this out for myself and thought I would share my thoughts. I

Kanban in a non-linear flow

A Kanban board is supposed to represent the current process, the way it is right now. Representing the way we work on a simple, linear, Kanban board, is not always easy. In fact, it’s not always possible. Sometimes, the way we work is more complex than that. Jurgen Appelo described how to deal with more complex systems in his recent post on networked Kanban, and that’s what inspired me to write this post.

Kanban for Portfolio Management

Kanban for Portfolio Management | kanban | Scoop.it

The very presence of the term Portfolio Management (in the Programme/Project Management Office context) in your organisation would suggest your organisation is of the Analytic mindset.

 

This means it is a necessary evil for you right now and Kanban can certainly offer you some help in this space.

Kanban is not your process

The explosive growth of the Kanban community and the buzz surrounding it has given raise to a steady stream of questions regarding its relation to other approaches and tools. Many with agile backgrounds expect to find a highly opinionated & pre-packaged methodology akin to Scrum, XP or the Crystal family. The profusion of “Scrum vs Kanban” themed blogs and discussions perpetuates such beliefs often missing some of the fundamental flaws in the comparison.

Waterfall, Lean/Kanban, and Scrum

There are four identified problem spaces: Simple, Complicated, Complex, and Chaotic. The identification of the problem space arises from the characteristics of the problem domain. In software development, these are the technology, the requirements, and the people doing the work.
