Kanban Pizza Game at Agile Development Conference East 2013

The Kanban pizza game is a fun and memorable way to learn the Kanban method. Brad Swanson from agile42 will facilitate the game at ADC East in Boston

Brad Swanson, agile42 Senior Coach, is facilitating the Kanban Pizza Game at the Agile Development Conference East in Boston in November. The game has been highlighted now at numerous events worldwide, including Agile2012, Limited WIP Society Hamburg, and DARE 2013.

The Kanban Pizza Game is a hands-on simulation designed to teach the core elements of a kanban system—visualize the workflow, limit your work-in-process (WIP), manage flow, make process policies explicit, and improve collaboratively. Join Brad Swanson as the proprietor of your very own pizza shop to experience how kanban helps eliminate bottlenecks, minimize waste, and keep up with customer demand—all while competing against other teams for the title of “Pizza King.” Find out if you can really improve throughput and profit through the sometimes-counterintuitive practices of single-piece flow and limiting WIP. Finally, Brad relates your experience back to the software world to show how kanban can be an evolutionary path to lean-agile development. Whether you are a novice seeking to learn kanban in a memorable way or a seasoned practitioner looking for a great simulation to teach kanban to others, this is the session for you!

Save up to $200 on conference registration by using discount code SP58BS when you register. Early bird prices are available until October 11th.
