Jason Yip on IT Operations #Kanban #Lean

The Lean / Central Europe / conference was held last week.  A number of presentations have been published to the web.  To help you keep up, and digest what went on I a going to help out by publishing a bunch of presentations - one per day for the rest of this week

The first I'll bring to your attention is Jason Yip of Sydney on IT operations.

The major problem that IT Ops teams face is the one that Kanban is well-designed to solve: No one can see (and therefore don't understand) the work that they do. Because of this lack of visibility, teams are overloaded, priorities are questionable and/or unclear, and most activity is non-strategic firefighting.

I will show how to use Kanban for better management of IT Operations as well as setup the conditions necessary for continuous improvement.
