Mike Burrows vermittelt in diesem Buch einen neuen Ansatz, Kanban zu verstehen und einzusetzen. Er beschreibt die Methode von innen heraus anhand von neun Werten, wodurch er den Prinzipien und Praktiken Kanbans ein starkes Gerüst verleiht. Die Werte bieten ein effizientes Instrument, um die Umsetzung der Kanban-Vorgehensweise zu beurteilen und so anhaltende Veränderungen zu erzielen. Die neun Werte der Kanban-Methode sind im ersten Teil des Buches mit vielen Praxisbeispielen beschrieben: Transparenz, Balance, Zusammenarbeit, Kundenfokus, Arbeitsfluss (Flow), Führung (Leadership), Verständnis, Einverständnis und Respekt. Abschließend werden zwei jüngere Konzepte vorgestellt: die drei Agenden und die Kanban-Linse. Teil II befasst sich mit verwandten Methoden, die dabei helfen, die Kanban-Methode noch effektiver einzusetzen: Systems Thinking, Lean Development, agile Vorgehensweisen und die Engpasstheorie. Der letzte Teil ist eine Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung zur Implementierung von Kanban mittels STATIK (Systems Thinking Approach to Introducing Kanban). Aufgezeigt werden praktische Wege, wie Sie Anforderungen und Bedürfnissen aus der Organisation, von Kollegen und Kunden noch besser gerecht werden können. Das Buch gibt einen umfassenden Einblick in den aktuellen Stand der Kanban-Methode. Einsteiger werden verstehen, warum und wie Kanban funktioniert, sodass sie es wirksam in ihre bestehenden Strukturen und Teams integrieren können. Erfahrene Anwender lernen neue Werkzeuge sowie Vorgehensweisen kennen und gewinnen einen neuen Blick auf Kanban. ´This book is now the recommended text book for the LeanKanban Foundation level training ´Getting Started with Kanban´. Mike´s Kanban from the Inside has by far the most extensive and up-todate coverage of Kanban used in creative and knowledge work businesses in the 21st Century than anything published to date.

Agile Estimating and Planning

The first step to project success is accurate estimating and realistic planning. Projects with unrealistic expectations affixed to them are likely to derail at an early stage. This book shows the software practitioner how to effectively estimate and properly plan a project within an agile context. The book´s content is suitable for projects using any agile or semi-agile process (such as Extreme Programming, Scrum, Feature Driven Development, Crystal, Adaptive Software Development, DSDM or even the IBM Rational Unified Process). The ideas in this book will work with any iterative development process, which greatly broadens the target audience beyond the traditional agile community. Each chapter is supported by a summary and a set of questions that allows readers to assess their ability to estimate and plan a project. The result is an engaging read with pearls of wisdom that can be applied to the reader´s next project. Product Description Praise for Agile Estimating and Planning Traditional, deterministic approaches to planning and estimating simply don´t cut it on the slippery slopes of today´s dynamic, change-driven projects. Mike Cohn´s breakthrough book gives us not only the philosophy, but also the guidelines and a proven set of tools that we need to succeed in planning, estimating, and scheduling projects with a high uncertainty factor. At the same time, the author never loses sight of the need to deliver business value to the customer each step of the way. -Doug DeCarlo, author of eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility (Jossey-Bass, 2004) We know how to build predictive plans and manage them. But building plans that only estimate the future and then embrace change, challenge most of our training and skills. In Agile Estimating and Planning , Mike Cohn once again fills a hole in the Agile practices, this time by showing us a workable approach to Agile estimating and planning. Mike delves into the nooks and crannies of the subject and anticipates many of the questions and nuances of this topic. Students of Agile processes will recognize that this book is truly about agility, bridging many of the practices between Scrum and ExtremeProgramming. -Ken Schwaber, Scrum evangelist, Agile Alliance cofounder, and signatory to the Agile Manifesto In Agile Estimating and Planning , Mike Cohn has, for the first time, brought together most everything that the Agile community has learned about the subject. The book is clear, well organized, and a pleasant and valuable read. It goes into all the necessary detail, and at the same time keeps the reader´s burden low. We can dig in as deeply as we need to, without too much detail before we need it. The book really brings together everything we have learned about Agile estimation and planning over the past decade. It will serve its readers well. -Ron Jeffries, www.XProgramming.com, author of Extreme Programming Installed (Addison-Wesley, 2001) and Extreme Programming Adventures in C# (Microsoft Press, 2004) Agile Estimating and Planning provides a view of planning that´s balanced between theory and practice, and it is supported by enough concrete experiences to lend it credibility. I particularly like the quote ´planning is a quest for value.´ It points to a new, more positive attitude toward planning that goes beyond the ´necessary evil´ view that I sometimes hold. -Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2005) Up-front planning is still the most critical part of software development. Agile software development requires Agile planning techniques. This book shows you how to employ Agile planning in a succinct, practical, and easy-to-follow manner. -Adam Rogers, Ultimate Software Mike does a great follow-up to User Stories Applied by continuing to provide Agile teams with the practical approaches and techniques to increase agility. In this book, Mike provides time-proven and well-tested methods for being successful with the multiple levels of planning and estimating required by Agile. This book is the first to detail the disciplines of Agile estimating and planning, in ways that rival my 1980 civil engineering texts on CPM Planning and Estimating. -Ryan Martens, President and Founder, Rally Software Development Corporation With insight and clarity, Mike Cohn shows how to effectively produce software of high business value. With Agile estimation and planning, you focus

Learn to build robust software that more closely meets the customer´s needs through applying the concept of user stories. A clear explanation of the most agile means of gathering software requirements Thoroughly reviewed and eagerly anticipated by the agile software development community Allows the reader to save time and resources by gathering the proper requirements BEFORE coding begins The concept of user stories has its roots as one of the main tenets of Extreme Programming. In simple terms, user stories represent an effective means of gathering requirements from the customer (roughly akin to use cases). This book describes user stories and demonstrates how they can be used to properly plan, manage, and test software development projects. The book highlights both successful and unsuccessful implementations of the concept, and provides sets of questions and exercises that drive home its main points. After absorbing the lessons in this book, readers will be able to introduce user stories in their organizations as an effective means of determining precisely what is required of a software application. Product Description Thoroughly reviewed and eagerly anticipated by the agile community, User Stories Applied offers a requirements process that saves time, eliminates rework, and leads directly to better software. The best way to build software that meets users´ needs is to begin with ´´user stories´´: simple, clear, brief descriptions of functionality that will be valuable to real users. In User Stories Applied , Mike Cohn provides you with a front-to-back blueprint for writing these user stories and weaving them into your development lifecycle. You´ll learn what makes a great user story, and what makes a bad one. You´ll discover practical ways to gather user stories, even when you can´t speak with your users. Then, once you´ve compiled your user stories, Cohn shows how to organize them, prioritize them, and use them for planning, management, and testing. User role modeling: understanding what users have in common, and where they differ Gathering stories: user interviewing, questionnaires, observation, and workshops Working with managers, trainers, salespeople and other ´´proxies´´ Writing user stories for acceptance testing Using stories to prioritize, set schedules, and estimate release costs Includes end-of-chapter practice questions and exercises User Stories Applied will be invaluable to every software developer, tester, analyst, and manager working with any agile method: XP, Scrum... or even your own home-grown approach.
