Lean Philosophy and Agile

"Reducing lean thinking to Kanban, queue management, and other tools is like reducing working democracy to voting. Voting is good, but democracy is far more subtle and difficult - Craig Larman, and Bas Vodde in 'The Lean Primer'

 

It is easy to identify practices that work best for a given situation and have our methodology optimized to benefit the system, but it is difficult to sustain the change if it's done without understanding the "why" behind the "how". The underlying laws that drive such practices have to be understood.

 

The Lean house metaphorically summarizes these laws.

My expertise includes Scrum, Kanban, ScrumBan, Lean, Spotify Scaling, Large Scaled Scrum (LeSS,) and Scaled Agile Framework for enterprise (SAFe.)

I facilitate Leadership Alignment through Appreciative Inquiry (AI), OpenSpace, and Liberating Structures. I also lead User Personal creation through Empathy Mapping, Product visioning, BHAGs, SWAT, Product Roadmapping, Impact Mapping, User Story Mapping, Agile Estimations, Multi-team-multi-sprint Release Forecasting,  Team Reset/ Startup, and co-creation of Definition of Done, and Definition of Ready
