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.
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.
