Though I frequent the LeadingAgile website, I have to do a little more than just retweet a link in support of this post. I’ve known Mike Cottmeyer a while now. The guy just gets it! For those who are new to Agile, Scrum, or Kanban, you need to carve out 10 minutes and watch this video. In his own words, Mike says he
blends concepts like Epics, Features, User Stories, Story Maps, Minimally Marketable Features, Scrum, Kanban, RUP, and even traditional SDLC to create a scaleable agile enterprise portfolio framework.
I wouldn’t doubt that pretty much anyone who watches this video is going to have a light bulb moment. Recently, I’ve had quite a few people asking me about Kanban. Though I’m excited to tell them what I know and my approaches, Mike does an awesome job of both blending Scrum and Kanban and then communicating the approach in 10 minutes.
