Lean Kanban NA - Managing Risk
The Risk track at LKNA 2014 will discuss how an analytical approach to risk identification and management is an important part of managing Agile modern processes such as Kanban and Lean. A focus of this year’s risk track is practical approaches to understanding how our process decisions increase the likelihood of on-time delivery of software, and how we would measure that impact. We go beyond impact versus likelihood matrix charts and discuss how to understand how leading companies are managing risk in concert with their Agile transformations and process.
New Methods for Minimizing Risk During Product Development - Chris Shinkle
Product development challenges are not new. The level of uncertainty inherent in dealing with these challenges requires an approach that acknowledges and is optimized for that uncertainty. We?re seeing a shift in the way product development companies think about and manage risk associated with products development. Organizations solely focusing on improving efficiency will not overcome these obstacles. They must adopt new practices that allow them to successfully explore these highly uncertain environments and minimize risks.
Risk Reduction Metrics for Agile Organizations - Dan Greening
Agile and lean processes make it easier for organizations to measure company and team performance, assess risk and opportunity, and adapt. My colleagues and I have used delivery rate, concept-to-cash lead-time, architectural foresight, specialist dependency, forecast horizon and experiment invalidation rate to identify risk, and focus risk-reduction and learning efforts. With greater knowledge, we can eliminate low-opportunity options early and more deeply explore higher-opportunity options to maximize value.
