Rachel Davies - Moving from Scrum to Kanban from NDCOslo on Vimeo.

Many teams who are already using Scrum would like to know what benefits they can get by moving to Kanban. Dropping the Sprint timebox can seem quite scary but on the other hand spending less time planning and estimating seems attractive to many developers. How do you know that you haven't thrown the baby out with the bathwater?

Come to this talk to hear about what Kanban can bring your team and what practical steps you take to get started and keep going through the rough patches. We also take a look at potential pitfalls with Kanban and situations where you might want to move back to vanilla Scrum. I'll illustrate this talk with some stories from teams I've been coaching at BBC and Deutsche Bank.
