4:55:09 ‹Tiff› it is also larger conversation about Agile production planning 07/06/2010 14:57:19 ‹Tiff› we have had iteration planning meeting previously (a "pre-process" to Dev) but iteration planning only makes sense when you have consistent design and dev resources 07/06/2010 14:59:23 ‹Tiff› so, because we do not have yet predictable resources, XP Extreme Programming as Agile approach doesn't work well for us. 07/06/2010 14:59:51 ‹Tiff› However, setting up Kanban would work well 07/06/2010 15:02:23 ‹Tiff› I like Kanban. It resonates with the Df Way. To make Kanban work well for us requires facilitation, celebrating successes, visual board 07/06/2010 15:03:34 ‹Tiff› kanban could work for design and other production processes as well. 07/06/2010 15:05:16 ‹Tiff› kanban board 07/06/2010 15:05:32 ‹Tiff› off to breakfast now...  AFK (away from keyboard) 07/06/2010 15:20:13 ‹danbashaw› Thanks Tiff -- The Kanban approach sounds interesting. I'll check the links. I've felt for a while now that Agile on a two-week cycle is not workable for us, but that once the other teams (Design and Content/Documentation/Help) are in place, a four week cycle could work. 07/06/2010 15:28:20 ‹Tiff› there are many flavors of Agile - XP is time-boxed iterations for small team. Kanban is the newest flavor - most minima structure, good for unpredictable resources 07/06/2010 15:29:40 ‹Tiff› Here are Df resources on Kanban -- 07/06/2010 15:30:54 ‹Tiff› Joe and I had set up Kanban board before on the wiki, but the wiki was too cumbersome for the board. 07/06/2010 15:31:19 ‹Tiff› and it requires a person facilitating the board 07/06/2010 15:31:59 ‹danbashaw› As an olde fishe, I remember Kanban from well before any form of rapid application development was more than a baby fish! I seen to recall it goes back to the 1980s in quality management... 07/06/2010 15:33:01 ‹danbashaw› However maybe I'm mixing it up with another similar Japanese phrase... I'll get backgrounded on that.
