The Vocabulary of Systems Thinking: A Pocket Guide - The Systems Thinker

The Vocabulary of Systems Thinking: A Pocket Guide - The Systems Thinker | Lean,  Agile, Kanban and Related Interests | Scoop.it
Systems thinking can be thought of as a language for communicating about complexity and interdependencies (see “Systems Thinking as a Language,” Viewpoint, April 1991). To be fully conversant in any language, it is important to gain some mastery of the vocabulary — especially the phrases and idioms that are particular to that language. To help …

Cynefin and Theory of Constraints by Steve Holt | Cognitive Edge [Snowden et Al.]

Cynefin and Theory of Constraints by Steve Holt | Cognitive Edge [Snowden et Al.] | Lean,  Agile, Kanban and Related Interests | Scoop.it
I discovered Cognitive Edge and the Cynefin Model after learning, studying, applying and dabbling in a number of other models and tool sets, mostly in the fields of management science and continuous improvement. I’d like to spend a portion of my guest blogs talking about some of the insights I’ve picked up on my learning journey. [...] In late June I gave a presentation to the annual conference of the Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization [...]. The presentation was an overview of the Cynefin Framework for a Theory of Constraints (TOC) audience [...] Since a TOC audience saw value in learning about the Cynefin Framework, then in the spirit of “turn about is fair play” I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce TOC to a Cynefin knowledgeable audience.

“Agile” CCPM: Critical Chain for Software Development - 30 page White Paper by Koichi Ujigawa and David Updegrove | TOCICO

“Agile” CCPM: Critical Chain for Software Development - 30 page White Paper by Koichi Ujigawa and David Updegrove | TOCICO | Lean,  Agile, Kanban and Related Interests | Scoop.it
[...] This paper suggests expanding the current TOC knowledge in Critical Chain Project Management (CCPM) by examining a modified network construction process and buffer management method for use in software development. The problem we are seeking to address is the assumption held by many people in software development that CCPM, and by extension TOC, may not offer an acceptable (or good enough) solution for their project management challenges. Therefore, they embrace other methodologies, predominately Agile, as their preferred solution.

Ultimate Kanban: Scaling Agile without Frameworks at Ultimate Software

Ultimate Software settled on Kanban as its scaled methodology which went hand-in-hand with the company’s culture of autonomy. Teams define their own process and apply policies specific to their own context. Through the innovative use of flow practices and principles, Ultimate has been able to achieve many of the benefits of a Lean-Agile implementation without the use of a heavyweight framework.

#NoProjects – a number of authors have challenged the idea of the project as a delivery mechanism for information technology product development. The two measures of success and goals of project management and product development don’t align and the project mindset is even considered to be an inhibitor against product excellence. This emag presents some alternative approaches.

Are You Solving the Right Problems?

Are You Solving the Right Problems? | Lean,  Agile, Kanban and Related Interests | Scoop.it

It has been 40 years since Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Jacob Getzels empirically demonstrated the central role of problem framing in creativity. Thinkers from Albert Einstein to Peter Drucker have emphasized the importance of properly diagnosing your problems. So why do organizations still struggle to get it right?

Part of the reason is that we tend to overengineer the diagnostic process. Many existing frameworks—TRIZ, Six Sigma, Scrum, and others—are quite comprehensive. When properly applied, they can be tremendously powerful. But their very thoroughness also makes them too complex and time-consuming to fit into a regular workday....
