July 2018 Chapter Meeting
Is your Agile organization at a plateau? There is a secret ingredient that can take your Agile delivery to the next level, and it's name is "Flow". We will learn what flow is by running a simulation called FeatureBan that shows the benefits of Lean thinking applied to the movement of customer value. Learning Outcomes: - Why WIP and Flow matter - Understand the relationship of system utilization and flow - Create and use actionable metrics to foster improvements.
Thank you to Stephen Meyer and Apex Systems for sponsoring this event!
