Kanban Coaching Exchange – Delay: The Kanban Word for Snow with Fernando Cuenca
Thursday, October 5

Kanban emphasizes the need to understand delays better, akin to the Inuit’s 50 different words for snow, which can be used to convey a more nuanced understanding around something. Join Fernando Cuenca (Kanban University AKC, AKT, KCP, KMP) as his Kanban Coaching Exchange talk delves into identifying and addressing various types of delays in processes for improved efficiency.
Is There A Goal In Kanban?
Helen Meek (AKC, AKT, KCP, KMP) says at least once a week she hears someone say something like ‘Our people like Scrum as it gives them a goal to drive towards, in Kanban there is no goal and they feel like they are on a hamster wheel.”
To that she exclaims “What a load of rubbish!! There is absolutely no reason you cannot have a goal. When working on deliveries they are a great thing to have to keep the team driven and to understand if we are on track. They might not be applicable for all types of work that you do. But you can decide that!”

Live Virtual Conference
Generative AI is disrupting the world – and thereby increasing market dynamics, unbundling value chains, and evolving role expectations.

But how should they do so?
In this upcoming Live Virtual conference, join Xebia and Agile enthusiasts of the NCR region to explore the impact of generative AI in business agility, changing landscape of leadership, DevOps & platform engineering, and more. Conference presentations are suitable for beginner to expert level adopters of Agile.
