Jesper Boeg talks on the origins of Kanban, software Kanban, how it is different from other Agile methods and what it is useful for, the team maturity Kanban requires, and some of disadvantages of using Kanban.
Jesper Boeg has worked as Agile Coach and Developer at Trifork for the past 4 years, helping teams to adopt Agile. He believes that lack of communication is the root to all evil, and trust can only be established through an unrelenting focus on transparency in the entire organization. He is currently interested in seeing agility being brought back to Agile.

Agile Like a Sticky Pot
And even in adopting Kanban, Jesper's critiques seem to be born of Kanban's uncomfortable interference with accommodating both the agile practices he clings to and the unmentioned zealots who are still hard-core believers in the last lean-agile silver bullet.
Re: Agile Like a Sticky Pot
Thank you for your comment. I am always looking to improve my presentations and I think you have some very valid points. Could I ask you to elaborate a bit more on the following to sentences since I am not sure I fully understand what you mean:
"anecdotally coupled to having been married to definitions of both lean and agile that defined him as an evangelist"
"the unmentioned zealots who are still hard-core believers in the last lean-agile silver bullet"
Also any suggestions as to how I could change structure and content would be much appriciated.
Thanks in Advance
