A message from SPaMCAST's sponsor . . .
THe SPaMCAST 174 is sponsored by LeanKit Kanban. LeanKit Kanban is a software tool for kanban that is as simple to use as physical kanban. If you put it up on a touchscreen in your team area, it practically IS physical kanban. But your boards are available from anywhere, and updated in real-time. A slew of colors, icons, and avatars take your visual signaling to the next level. And the system tracks the metrics for you, providing analytics on bottlenecks, lead time, work distribution, process efficiency, and variability - for a single board or a whole company. It's kanban for the Lean enterprise.
I have been using LeanKit Kanban for a personal project my wife and I are working on. LeanKit allows us to share the Kanban board across the miles with ease!
Visit LeanKit Kanban! (and say hello for the SPaMCAST!)
