Kanban Roundup - June 20, 2012
By Dominica DeGrandis
Why do I feel (more than ever before), an incredible surge in learning? Perhaps all the material just released from Lssc12 in Boston? Perhaps the recent travel in Europe providing different reflections? I haven’t even gotten to Mayrhofen yet and my brain is revving up to make room for even more learning at the Kanban leadership retreat (#klrat). This roundup includes none other than great learning material.
Benjamin Mitchell’s (@benjaminm) post provides two more validations on points worthy of repetition: 1. Good intentions are not enough. 2. After standup is primo time for getting important work done. Read on for reasons why….

A question on 3-tiered boards posted on kanbandev
and kanbanops http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/kanbanops/message/194
resulted in some intriguing responses. Torbjorn Gyllebring (@drunkcod) reminded us of two benefits for using single-tiered boards: 1) It’s Easier to change a board design with fewer people to re-educate and 2) Humans cognitive capabilities & sense making capacities are limited.
Videos from the Lean Software & Systems conference (lssc12) in Boston continue to come online.
