Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 197!
The Software Process and Measurement Cast 197 has two parts! The first part of the Cast features my essay "What do you do when inertia wins?" The second part introduces a new column written by my friend and listener, Bill Fox. Bill is the creator of 5 Minutes to Process Improvement Success and will bring the lessons he has learned to the SPaMCAST!
The SPaMCAST 197 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.

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."
News just in . . . We also just got word that the SPM book has been adopted for a class at the University of West Flroida for the Fall.
