Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 149!

The SPaMCAST 149 features my simple checklist focusing on CMMI Readiness.  We look at three categories in this checklist; resources, plans and attitude.  Even if you are not contemplating the CMMI this checklist will be of interest.

THe SPaMCAST 149 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.  This week I was in Canada and we could share the kanban board across the miles with ease!

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."
