Workshop: Featureban (Experience before explanation!) Part 1/2
During this Kanban workshop we are going to play the Featureban simulation game invented by Mike Burrows.
FeatureBan is a simple and quick simulation that introduces several of the key concepts of Kanban, including visualization, feedback loops and limiting work in progress and lets participants learn by doing.
Kanban is a Lean change method that promotes continuous improvement through incremental change.
Outline/Structure of the Workshop
- Introduction and Simulation Instructions
(Time to setup the boards and ask questions)
- Iteration 1: we start with visual management
- Iteration 2: we introduce things like WIP limits
- Iteration 3: metrics
- Wrap-up: Q&A, comments
Participants will see how limiting WIP as part of a Kanban system produces flow. They can immediately use these concepts at their own workplace.
