Split Two-Topic Meeting on Kanban and Lean Topics
In the Experts Corner, For the Advanced, we have
Charlie Villare and Joe Berner demonstrating their Monte Carlo simulation tool that predicts delivery probability. This is part 3 in our series on Lean and Kanban
In this Part 3 of a series, Charlie Vallet and Joe Berner talk on Predicting Delivery with Probablity from a Monte Carlo Simulation Method
The tool is ScrumSim v2 from http://focusedobjective.com/kanbansim_scrumsim/downloads/
The Expert Corner is for those already practicing Kanban boards with defined WIP Limits.
And reference our AgilePhilly friend Dan Vacanti for more on WIP grooming.
For the rest of us geared toward Beginners, Intermediates, and anyone in general who want more than learning about one tool, Bob Marini presents
Traditional, Scrum, Lean, Kanban - what's best for my organization and team ?
We have come a long way from the time when we only had one way to execute on our projects. More methods have grown to allow teams to select the method that best fits their needs. But which method is best?
Contrary to common belief, the traditional waterfall method of running projects is alive and well. So what are the unique benefits of using Traditional, Scrum, Lean, Kanban approaches to projects ? Why is one approach better than another for a given project or organization ?
In his session, Bob will discuss the benefits and challenges of each technique, the situations when one technique may fit better than the others, and offer suggestions on how to get started if you want to experiment with another technique.
Bob Marini ( MBA, MS, PMP, CSM) has 30+ years in IT and 11 years in Agile, Scrum and Kanban.
As Developer, R&D Manager, Testing Mgr and Implementor, he has leveraged these roles into being PartTime Faculty at Penn State Great Valley. http://greatvalley.psu.edu/professional-development/non-credit-certificates-and-courses/agile-business-analysis

Part 1 was Joel Chew - Introduction to Lean Concepts
A good topic, one that may have implications for not just developers, but OPS and customer support as well.
Techniques we borrow from manufacturing as to “How to look with Lean eyes” at existing, repeated processes use:
Value Flow Mappings
