Talk #1 – Kanban for Developers
There is much hype about Kanban since it was perfected and introduced to the world by Toyota. Since then, not only manufacturers but all businesses looked into this simple but extremely powerful approach.
As software developers are yearning for better project management and visibility on all aspects of their work, Kanban naturally blipped on their radar.
In this video, you will see the look at the origins of Kanban, how it applies to software development along with misunderstandings and myths. You will also see TJ compare manufacturing practices with software development techniques and how you can benefit from their experiences. By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of Kanban and how to become more efficient and productive by limiting the amount of work you do.
Talk #2 – Kaizen: Continuous Process Improvement
Enterprises can utilize Process Improvement to improve their workflow, allowing them to be more efficient, eliminate bottlenecks and problem areas, and as a result, achieve reduced costs, on-time delivery and increased profits. Currently, enterprises are facing stiffer competition to win customer acceptance through quality, and the need to develop more customer-oriented products and services faster than ever before.
Einstein said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”, and that is what lies at the heart of Kaizen. Improvement comes with a different look at the problems and doing this continuously every day and everywhere. It is more of a company culture than a project.
But where do we start improving? British comic writer Douglas Adams said “See first, think later, then test. But always see first. Otherwise you will only see what you were expecting.”. And that is exactly where we start. By looking deep into our workflow and process.
In this video, you will see the Kaizen philosophy, why change is important and very hard to do. Also we will analyze waste and why it is bad for our business and how a quality-first approach makes us better at what we do. TJ also provides some test cases and finishes off by looking at how to implement a Kaizen culture at the office by involving everybody.
