LSSC12 : Decentralizing Control: How Aligned Initiative Conquers Uncertainty - Reinertsen

This presentation was given at the Lean Software and Systems Conference 2012 (LSSC12).

The situations we must manage span the range from deterministic to stochastic. On the deterministic end we have wonderful methods from the highly repetitive world of manufacturing. On the extreme stochastic end, completely unpredictable situations with an infinite number of possible conditions, each of unknown likelihood, planning is useless. Product development lies between these extremes – we deal with limited rather than complete uncertainty. Such conditions also appear in other domains. In this session Don Reinertsen will discuss the strategies of decentralized control that are used in the military. Such approaches are interesting because they work at large scale and they have avoided the natural tendency of self-organization to turn into local optimization

Kanban CFD Visualization App

A year ago, I joined a Kanban training courses given by David J Anderson in Beijing during the AgileChina 2013.  I learned a lot from the training courses and obtained a copy of "Lessons in Agile Management" from David.  I would really want to say "Thanks" here.I keep practicing Kanban in my team.  As our company is using Rally, there is no CFD diagram in Rally although it has a built in Kanban board which is great.  After some days' manual capturing data to built CFD diagram, I finally cannot…See More

Kanban Case Study - Shane Huesdon

1) WHY you chose to use KanbanI chose Kanban after extensive study of ToC. I read The Goal, beyond the goal, the phoenix project and many more. My team (Computer Infrastructure) was the primary constraint of the IT value stream and I needed to correct that. My goal, shift the constraint to business solutions/project side.2) HOW you did itI talked. A lot.Started a test board and asked my team to start inputing their tasks and observe wip limits.Created a bridge program that sync'd tasks in our…See More
