Get your 4x4 In Gear - Bringing Scrum and Kanban together
Understanding the 4 Kanban practices and the 4 Kanban metrics of Professional
Scrum with Kanban and how a Business Analyst can help
Scrum is an excellent framework for many teams, but in my experience, some teams want or
- More data
- More visualization
- More focus on getting things done.
But, sometimes the team needs less.
- Less anxiety
- Less ambiguity
- Less waste
By combining Professional Scrum with Kanban principles and metrics we have a phenomenal
opportunity to ask the right questions sooner, solve the right problems faster and measure
more of what matters.
In this session I'll present the 4 principles and 4 metrics that will help your team focus on flow
as well a show you how to uncover and move past “faux Kanban”. Both of these takeaways
should help you use data so that you can solve the right problems sooner, have better
conversations with stakeholders and optimize.
Jim will discuss the practices and metrics that Scrum Teams can use with Kanban to focus on
their flow and create a basis for continuous improvement.
Jim has been called an Enterprise Agile Coach, Agile Coach, Scrum Master, Trainer and a whole host of other titles over the last 25 years in tech. If Jim could be called anything, it would be an “Agile Maverick”, a nod to his favorite movie Top Gun.
Jim is a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org and also holds a variety of certifications in Kanban, SAFe, LeSS and other practices (there are probably even some expired Microsoft and VMware certs to be found somewhere in his basement, next to the action figures and copious amounts of books). A self-described “Agile Hippy”, he loves helping people, teams and organizations of all sizes take a more humanistic approach to work in the spirit of getting more valuable work done.
His interests run the gamut, but he has a particular passion for boardgaming, coffee and making things from wood and metal with his 3D printer, lathe and CNC. He also picked up the jigsaw puzzle hobby during the early days of COVID and there is normally a puzzle (and sometimes two) in progress somewhere within easy reach.
