“Priming Kanban: A 10 step guide to optimizing flow in your software delivery system” by Jesper Boeg is available as a free pdf download from InfoQ.


Kanban, or more precisely “Kanban system for software development”, represents a more direct implementation of Lean Product Development principles in software development, compared to traditional Agile methods. With a consistent focus on flow and context, Kanban offers a less prescriptive approach to Agile and has become a popular extension to traditional methods, like Scrum and XP.

This ebook offers an easy to follow 10 step guide to taking the initial plunge and start using Lean principles to optimizing value and flow in your system. Each step consists of a section explaining “why” followed by examples of specific tools, practices and rules that have helped other teams better understand and optimize their system. The author’s hope is that this will make it easier for teams to get started and quickly understand the importance of value and flow by experiencing it first hand.
