Kanban: Getting Started

Kanban: Getting Started is a new course by Steve Smith on Pluralsight.

Kanban is an interesting methodology that can be used in many places – it became common in manufacturing after Toyota invented and had great success, and it can also be useful in daily life and software development.

Kanban is about maximizing flow in systems, which is usually very useful, reducing waste and helping find bottlenecks.

It is also relatively simple, vs scrum and more complicated methods, and can be used in many different ways.

I particularly like that the course had a separate section for single and team use. Some specific services (such as Trello) are mentioned, but mostly briefly. As also are physical boards.

Overall, I found this course quite useful, and it certainly left me interested in using Kanban in practice.
