Leistungsstarkes Werkzeug für Kanban-Initiativen
- Roadmap zur schrittweisen kontinuierlichen Prozessoptimierung
- Spezifische Praktiken, um Organisationen beweglicher und anpassungsfähiger zu machen
- Pragmatisches Vorgehen, angelehnt an bekannte Reifegradmodelle wie CMMI®
Das Kanban Maturity Model (KMM) entstand durch die Arbeit in den letzten 10 Jahren bei der Einführung von Kanban in kleinen und großen Unternehmen verschiedener Branchen. Es spiegelt die Erfahrung wider, dass die angewendeten Kanban-Praktiken zur organisatorischen Reife des Unternehmens passen müssen.
Die KMM-Roadmap und konkrete Maßnahmen ermöglichen es, die gewünschte Business-Agilität zu erreichen. Die sieben Reifegrade des Modells sind an etablierte Reifegradmodelle wie CMMI angepasst und ergänzen bzw. erweitern diese.
Das Buch richtet sich an Kanban-Coaches und Führungskräfte, die bei der Einführung oder Verbesserung von Kanban-Implementierungen handlungsleitende Hilfestellung suchen. Die verwendeten Praktiken werden mit vielen anschaulichen Beispielen erläutert.
This collection of over 150 articles compiled from the Agile Management blog and several other sources represents 12 years of invaluable insights by David J. Anderson in managing software development from 1999 through to 2011. Each article has been carefully selected and grouped into one of 16 chapters on topics such as Leadership, Management, Peter Drucker, Theory of Constraints and Eli Goldratt, W. Edwards Deming, Human Resource Departments and Policies, Agile, Lean and Leading Change Initiatives. Each chapter is introduced with contemporary commentary explaining its relevance and contribution to both Agile and Kanban.
This book might have been titled, "The Very Best of Agile Management Blog" but that would do it an injustice. Each article has been lovingly reworked from the original to provide a coherent flowing story that introduces both the need for Kanban and how it emerged as a leading method for improving agility in knowledge work organizations. Many articles are enhanced with new observations and reflection on how the Agile community has progressed since original publication. In total there are around 20,000 words of current insights explaining why Kanban is necessary and what makes it an important innovation in the development of Agile methods.
