Social engineering for/with/using Kanban

Level: Intermediate

Sociology is inherently what makes Agile software development methods different from their predecessors. Other aspects of Agile such as pride of workmanship, craftsmanship, focus on quality, testing, highly iterative development, incremental small batch development, and a focus on human psychology were not new, many of these aspects of Agile dating back to the 1960s. The new element in 2001 was sociology - collaborative working in a high trust environment.

This talk will explain how a deep understanding has been used to engineer the growth of the Kanban movement globally, and how different mechanisms in the Kanban Method can be used to increase social capital in the workplace with a significant economic, social and psychological payoff for both business and individuals that work within those businesses.
