Kanban - Myths and Misconceptions

"What is the Kanban Method?" 

• It’s not about replacing your current software development process.
• It’s not about changing or removing your team's current titles and roles or adding any new ones.
• It’s not about a process that is only for support, maintenance, or "dev ops" teams.

Does any of the above surprise you? 

During the Kanban Leaders Retreat (KLRUS) in San Diego last November of 2012, several leading kanban coaches, trainers, and practitioners participated in a session focused on identifying some of the “surprising” myths and misconceptions about the Kanban Method observed as they coach, train, and guide others on work sites. 


In this session Frank Vega (shown below) shares some of the insights gathered from leaders at KLRUS about several of the myths and misconceptions discussed there. If you’re just beginning to learn about the Kanban Method, this presentation will provide a useful foundational perspective to keep in mind as you continue your research and reading of articles, posts, etc. Those who are a bit more experienced with the Kanban Method will benefit too by becoming more familiar with these misconceptions and how our community is working to address them.  

Frank has worked in IT/IS 25+ years, the last 16 focused on software development in director, software architect, technical team lead, and developer roles, including assisting teams with applying lean-agile processes and practices (Scrum, XP). In late 2007 he began using the Kanban Method with teams and now utilizes this experience to coach others in optimizing and evolving their processes and practices using pull-scheduling methods. He has presented his team's kanban experience reports to Carnegie Mellon University - West Coast Campus graduate level "Metrics for Software Engineers" courses, collaborates with leading kanban practitioners, and contributes to the lean-agile/kanban communities via conferences and local user groups.
