Thanks Steve and good point. However I'm not convinced of the argument for enforcing this constraint just for the sake of making Little's Law exact (soundsandycarmichaeluk
Nice, Andy. Just an observation: the easiest way to make a system compliant (2 moments with WIP=0) is to use MMFs/MMRs (or other equivalent work packages).steve.tendon
Hi All I've been discussing the calculations of average WiP in this spreadsheet with Troy, and we believe we have an improvement that ensures Little's Lawandycarmichaeluk
This group discusses the use of The Kanban Method to drive change in technology businesses, as defined in David J. Anderson's book, "Kanban - Successful Evolutionary Change for your Technology Business"
The Kanban Method was first described by David Anderson in 2007. Since then many have adopted it and reported successful implementations. This group aims to help current practitioners. New members are recommended to visit the Limited WIP Society, where a list of useful resources can be found, including relevant blogs and published articles.
David Anderson has defined the Kanban Method as
First follow the foundational principles
then adopt the core practices
It is not expected that implementations adopt all six practices initially. Partial implementations are referred to as "shallow" with the expectation that they gradually increase in depth as more practices are adopted and implemented with greater capability.
Members are encouraged to focus on inquiry, dialogue, ideas and understanding, rather than advocacy, argument, individuals and defensiveness, and asked to keep posts relevant to Kanban. Thanks
We want to maintain a very high signal to noise ratio on this list. As such, announcements and commercial posting will not be tolerated unless they are from regular contributors, and specifically about a Kanban related topic.
