Title: FeatureBan - A simulation to introduce Kanban basics

Speaker: David Kane

Time/Room: 10:55 AM/Marquis

Abstract: FeatureBan is a simple and quick simulation that introduces several of the key concepts of Kanban, including visualization, feedback loops and limiting work in process and that lets participants learn by doing. The simulation is also useful because it lets organizations who are curious about Kanban quickly learn about it before investing further. Mike Burrows invented the simulation, but in this session we will present a modified version that we have used with both technical and non-technical audiences.

Topic: Agile Methodologies

Target Audience: Introduction

Keywords: Kanban, Work in Process Limits, Simulation, Game
