This session is about introducing Kanban concepts first in the abstract, and then sharing the ups and downs of my company's experience with concrete implementations of these ideas, and how it has improved not just our SDLC process, but also the overall culture of the company.
Kanban has a long and proven track record with improving process in the manufacturing industry, but has only recently been applied to managing change and process within software engineering. While we all face many technical coding challenges as we happily craft our PHP-based software, often some of the most challenging obstacles we have to overcome are in working within a team or across disparate teams to
collaboratively deliver large, complex, integrated systems. The process of getting software applications from bright ideas on the whiteboard to production can be a long and arduous journey. This journey can be
particularly painful without a well-defined method capable of facilitating collaboration, appropriately reacting to inevitable change, keeping people focused, encouraging self-management, and minimizing waste. I have spent the past 6+ months (10+ by June 29th conference time) implementing Kanban as a change management solution within our SDLC process. In this session, I'll share this experience and demonstrate how applying the concepts of Kanban can help improve upon your development process.
