Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 196!

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 196 features my inteview with Jeff Anderson of Deloitte on topics that spanned lean, kanban and using the ideas from the work done on lean startups as a process improvement tool.

Bio - 

Jeff started his professional life as your typical IT development geek, creating software delivery joy through the use of things like patterns, agile methods, and overall object oriented goodness. For the most part he was disappointed in the way IT delivery projects were managed, the reason they were started, and how they ended up. This dissatisfaction with the status quo led him to gradually embrace a new mission in life, to help IT knowledge workers to become awesome at what they do. To that end he has created the Deloitte LEAN service offering, providing advisory, coaching, and change management services to IT departments. Jeff has built this capability within Deloitte to help IT clients truly transform the way they operate their business. Over the last several years he has played a leadership role in some of the largest Kanban based enterprise transformations worldwide. Jeff keeps adding new tools to his transformation utility belt, including lean startup, gamification and others to define the next generation of work environments for knowledge professionals. Last, but definitely not least, Jeff is the proud father of a brand new daughter Mila, and husband of to his amazing wife Barbara.

The SPaMCAST 196 is sponsored by LeanKit Kanban

By now, most of you in the Lean-Agile community have heard of LeanKit, recognized by community leaders and practitioners alike as the most flexible and powerful tool available for implementing visual management. Since their launch in 2009, LeanKit has helped hundreds of companies around the world to quickly and easily model even very complex processes as vertical and horizontal lanes on a virtual whiteboard with cards representing work flowing from step to step. 

Well, LeanKit has now announced the launch of groundbreaking new features that allow even the largest enterprise portfolio and projects to be managed using multiple levels of drill-down Kanban boards, detailed sub-taskboards, and roll-up Lean metrics - as well as a complete overhaul of their user interface that makes LeanKit more attractive, more intuitive, and easier to manage. If you haven't checked out LeanKit or haven't lately, check out the website to explore how they can help Lean-Agile scale within your organization.   Visit LeanKit Kanban! (and say hello for the SPaMCAST!)

Shameless Ad for my book! 

Mastering Software Project Management: Best Practices, Tools and Techniques co-authored by Murali Chematuri and myself and  published by J. Ross Publishing. We have received unsolicited reviews like the following: "This book will prove that software projects should not be a tedious process, neither for you or your team."

We also just got word that the SPM book has been adopted for a class at the University of West Flroida for the Fall.  Have you bought your copy?
