I wish I was there – LESS 2010


I’m sorry I could not go to LESS 2010. Hope to be able to go next year. I tried to follow the discussions by monitoring twitter. Below are some of the highlights:

alshalloway: a one year budget is a way to make sure we can’t react for at least a year. #less2010 (me)

alshalloway: perf is ultimately about outperforming peers. #less2010 bogsnes

alshalloway: the goal is not precision. it’s to have great performance! 🙂 love this #less2010 bogsnes

alshalloway: best slide yet. don’t worry if you’re under budget. continuously ask if the money you’ve spent is ok.  http://twitpic.com/2yor1l #less2010

benjaminm: How does being better than competitors tell you how you gain an understanding of how you can improve? #less2010 #BeyondBudgeting

alshalloway: test of whether you are doing Scrum well. are you using Scrum to engage management or to isolate you from management?

alshalloway: having explict policies does _NOT_ mean that you only have one #less2010

kjscotland: When writing a book, there is a transaction cost of publishing which means its a better economic choice to batch the chapters. #less2010

alshalloway: @kjscotland agreed. reinertsen has being saying 1 piece flow in prod dev doesn’t make sense. #less2010

drunkcod: Standardized work is articulation that’s just another form of visualization.

verneriaberg: People love tools, so they’re easy to sell. Harder to grasp a way of thinking. End result lot’s of misleading books about tools #less2010

paallikko: @alshalloway Getting the right people to work the right thing at the right time is more important that doing any step faster! #less2010

benjaminm: I like what @arlobelshee espouses – “Make it safe so they don’t need the fear, do an exp,  stop, ask them if they want to go on” #less2010

christianralph: #LESS2010 hygiene features don’t require estimates. They need to get done. See Agile toolkit podcasts @arlobelshee

joakimsunden: LESS2011 was announced this morning. It will be in Stockholm in October and yours truly will proudly be the local chair. #less2010

benjaminm: “If you push people too hard they move towards fear” and “you need to include management” @alshalloway.  I like this focus #less2010

benjaminm: I think the #kanban approach should say “understand first, before you make a change (WIP limit) & vigilantly monitor 4 problems” #less2010
Original Tweet: http://twitter.com/benjaminm/statuses/27915238838

alshalloway: for the record. Kanban at the team level is much broader than scrum or XP. kanban also can cover entire Value stream #less2010
