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.
Understanding Risk, Impediments and Dependency Impact - Troy Magennis
Many teams spend considerable time designing and estimating the effort involved in developing features but relatively little understanding what can delay or invalidate their plans. This session outlines a way to model and visualize the impact of delays and risks in a way that leads to good mitigation decisions.
Decisions, Commitments and Real Options - Jabe Bloom
When we look at the relationship between decisions, options and information, the most obvious relationship is that good, relevant information helps us choose between options, producing good decisions. However, when we examine information and our processes it quickly becomes clear that we don't always have immediate access to the information we need, it may not even exist yet, or we may not have access to experts that can decode and interpret the information, making it tractable to our decisions. Information, knowledge and expertise is created, arrives and becomes useful over time.
