    Very interesting talk, well presented. I liked the creative slides - not your typical set of Powerpoint bullet points. I'm gradually building an understanding of Kanban - thanks for posting the talk.

  • I wish more management thought like this

    Paraphrasing some good points:

    No sacred cows: Q: If you can't question how (all) things are done, how can you reach high maturity? A: You can't.

    You can replace a problem with 'nothing'. 'Nothing' is way better than a problem.

    Just stopping things that cause pain was my epiphany a few years back. Once you accept this paradigm, you will see it applying to many situations.

    Great talk! Interesting how InfoQ categorized it: "This article is part of a featured topic series on Scrum" :-) Highly ironic.
