Kanban & Trello talk

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015

Kanban rule nr. 2 - limit work in progress
The Environment Agency of Iceland [is. Umhverfisstofnun] asked me to come and give a talk about Kanban and even connect that with Trello. I do like Kanban…and I do like Trello so this was really fun to set up.

I focused on what I like most from Kanban and was also able to touch a bit on Scrum after a question about the methods differences. I felt that was really good and wished that I planned to talk about that =) I sacrificed some things like the games but I tried my best to explain them. I also wanted to end the session with a short Retrospective but only ended up with explaining it and leaving people with the desire to follow up on that =)

The slides are online at slides.com. I didn’t get to draw images for all the slides (with Paper from 53), but I was really pleased with the results even though there were some “nude” slides …there’s always next time to improve on that 😉

The Trello board is also online that I tried to keep up with as we went to through each part…but I wasn’t able to write down all questions so they are just for the attendees.

Quite a good turnout and people were generally very pleased. Afterwards I had a few minutes to talk and check out one of their boards…wish I had more time with the enthusiastic individuals there that I feel are going in the right direction and I hope I’ll catch news of how they are evolving in the future =)

Thank you all at UST =)
