KANBAN IN DER PRAXIS // - Wissen Sie, warum Kanban keine Teammethode ist? - Wie können Sie Ihr bestehendes Kanban-System verbessern? - Worauf sollten Sie achten, wenn Sie Kanban „skalieren“ wollen? - Welchen Vorteil bietet Forecasting gegenüber Schätzungen? - Woran sollte man zuerst arbeiten und was kann noch warten? - Extra: E-Book inside Das Kanban-Board ist aufgestellt, die Swimlanes sind gezogen und die Blockade-Sticker geklebt. Und jetzt? In vielen Unternehmen kann Kanban nicht sein volles Potenzial ausspielen. Oft werden die Hintergründe der einzelnen Praktiken wie zum Beispiel WIP-Limits nicht richtig verstanden und alle Hoffnung wird in eine Methode gesetzt, statt in das eigene Handeln. Kanban hilft zu sehen, wo die Schwachpunkte eines Arbeitssystems liegen und offenbart damit, wie man für den Kunden noch besser Wert generieren kann. Dieses Buch hilft dabei, bestehende Kanban-Systeme neu zu justieren und so das eigene Handlungsrepertoire zu erweitern. Dazu beleuchtet Klaus Leopold detailliert Prinzipien und Funktionsweisen von Kanban, die nicht immer intuitiv sind. Er erklärt typische Problemmuster aus der praktischen Arbeit mit Kanban und zeigt auf, wie sich die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette eines Unternehmens verbessern lässt. Instrumente wie Verzögerungskosten und das Forecasting werden zu strategischen Hilfen und spätestens an diesem Punkt wird klar: Kanban ist keine Teammethode, sondern hat die Optimierung der gesamten Wertschöpfung eines Unternehmens im Blick. AUS DEM INHALT // - Die Wirkmechanismen von Kanban - Kanban-Systeme betreiben und verbessern - Forecasting - Priorisieren mit Verzögerungskosten Systemvoraussetzungen für E-Book inside: Internet-Verbindung und Adobe-Reader oder Ebook-Reader bzw.

Lean Development and Agile Methods for Large-Scale Products: Key Thinking and Organizational Tools for Sustainable Competitive Success Increasingly, large product-development organizations are turning to lean thinking, agile principles and practices, and large-scale Scrum to sustainably and quickly deliver value and innovation. However, many groups have floundered in their practice-oriented adoptions. Why? Because without a deeper understanding of the thinking tools and profound organizational redesign needed, it is as though casting seeds on to an infertile field. Now, drawing on their long experience leading and guiding large-scale lean and agile adoptions for large, multisite, and offshore product development, and drawing on the best research for great team-based agile organizations, internationally recognized consultant and best-selling author Craig Larman and former leader of the agile transformation at Nokia Networks Bas Vodde share the key thinking and organizational tools needed to plant the seeds of product development success in a fertile lean and agile enterprise. Coverage includes Lean thinking and development combined with agile practices and methods Systems thinking Queuing theory and large-scale development processes Moving from single-function and component teams to stable cross-functional cross-component Scrum feature teams with end-to-end responsibility for features Organizational redesign to a lean and agile enterprise that delivers value fast Large-scale Scrum for multi-hundred-person product groups In a competitive environment that demands ever-faster cycle times and greater innovation, applied lean thinking and agile principles are becoming an urgent priority. Scaling Lean & Agile Development will help leaders create the foundation for their lean enterprise—and deliver on the significant benefits of agility. In addition to the foundation tools in this text, see the companion book Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Large, Multisite, and Offshore Product Development with Large-Scale Scrum for complementary action tools.

Evolutionäre Revolution – Wie Kanban hilft, endlich besser zu werden Ein wahrnehmbarer Nutzen für das Unternehmen Der Großteil der Kanban-Implementierungen, die wir heutzutage auf dem Markt sehen, sind sehr einfach gehaltene Implementierungen, die über ein Team-Level nicht hinausgehen. Der wirkliche Nutzen von Kanban-Systemen bzw. der Methode entsteht allerdings, wenn mehr als nur die persönliche Arbeitsleistung mit einem Kanban-Board koordiniert wird. Erst wenn mehrere Teile der Wertschöpfungskette miteinander und mit Hilfe eines Kanban-Systems arbeiten, lässt sich für das Unternehmen ein wahrnehmbarer Nutzen ableiten. Dabei wird bei der Implementierung von Kanban immer darauf geachtet, kooperativ vorzugehen und Widerstand zu umgehen. Der Protagonist macht’s aus - lange vermisst, analog zu „die Kraft von Scrum“ jetzt über Kanban - Statt im Erklärmodus die Konzepte darzustellen, stellt das Buch durch eine durchgängige Story den Verlauf einer Kanban-Implementierung dar. - Sie können sich darin immer wiederfinden.

Eigentlich sollte man längst bei einem Termin sein, doch dann klingelt das Handy und das E-Mail-Postfach quillt auch schon wieder über. Für Sport und Erholung bleibt immer weniger Zeit und am Ende resigniert man ausgebrannt, unproduktiv und völlig gestresst. Doch das muss nicht sein. Denn je entspannter wir sind, desto kreativer und produktiver werden wir. Mit David Allens einfacher und anwendungsorientierter Methode wird beides wieder möglich: effizient zu arbeiten und die Freude am Leben zurückzugewinnen.

Japan's Cultural Code Words is a study of Japanese society through the understanding of the key terms and concepts that define their attitudes and behaviors. Japan's traditional culture is still so powerful that it continues to be the prevailing force in molding and tuning the national character of the Japanese, with the result that they still have two faces—one modern and rational, the other traditional and emotional. The best and fastest way to an understanding of the traditional and emotional side of Japanese attitudes and behavior is through their "business and cultural code words"—key terms that reveal, in depth, their psychology and philosophy. In 234 essays, arranged alphabetically from "Ageashi / Tripping on Your Own Tongue" to "Zenrei / Breaking the Molds of the Past". Long term expatriate and internationally renowned expert on Japan, Boye Lafayette De Mente offers personal insights into the extremes of Japanese behavior and into the dynamics of one of the world's most fascinating societies.
