Lean from the Trenches from Øredev Conference on Vimeo.

Find out how the Swedish police combined Kanban, Scrum, and XP in a 60-person project.
This is a high-paced talk based almost entirely on photos, diagrams, and concrete examples. We’ll go beyond the basics and walk through the project step by step, from customer engagement, to the “daily cocktail party”, test, cross-team synchronization, multi-layer kanban boards, version control, metrics, and more. The project was finalist in the Swedish “Project of the Year” awards for 2011.

Mary Poppendieck: “FANTASTIC! I know it’s going to make a big dent in the world of software development.”

Kent Beck: “FANTASTIC! Grounded, real, funny, smooth flow, good balance between theory and practice.”

Ward Cunningham: “Awesome. Kudos to you for documenting the everyday sort of decision making that has to happen for a big project to be successful. I hope it becomes a benchmark against which many more projects are judged.”
