Kanban (lang italian)

August 29, 2010

Gabriele Lana ha speso qualche parola su Kanban, per fare chiarezza dove la luce non è ancora arrivata … a dispetto di quello che sembrerebbe. 😉
La spesa per me è molto buona.
Giusto per citare 2 parole 2:

[…] Quindi i Kanban sono la rappresentazione sistemica del vincolo sulla capacità produttiva dell’impianto.[…]

In parole mie: non si deve ingolfare il sistema! 🙂

Una lettura completa ed approfondita del suo post è “mandatoria” 😉

Scrum and XP from the trenches

August 22, 2010

Scrum and XP from the trenches by Henrik Kniberg:

[…] This book aims to give you a head start by providing a detailed down-to-earth account of how one Swedish company implemented Scrum and XP with a team of approximately 40 people and how they continuously improved their process over a year’s time.

Under the leadership of Henrik Kniberg they experimented with different team sizes, different sprint lengths, different ways of defining “done”, different formats for product backlogs and sprint backlogs, different testing strategies, different ways of doing demos, different ways of synchronizing multiple Scrum teams, etc. They also experimented with XP practices – different ways of doing continuous build, pair programming, test driven development, etc, and how to combine this with Scrum.[…]

Thanks to Antonio Lucca and Luca Minudel for italian translate (here). 😉

Good job!
