Experiments with Flow - First Session

6th November 2014 in London at Business Design Centre

There are 14 other SkillsCasts available from Agile Testing & BDD eXchange 2014

This session was not filmed.

Please note this first session begins at 14:15. A repeat of this session will begin at 15:45.

Quite often we apply established economic trade off’s taken directly from manufacturing to knowledge work without questioning their validity in this different context.

Given that our work systems are complex in nature (as opposed to complicated cynefin fans) the relationships between variables that we can affect are not clear and often contrary to what we might expect.

In this highly interactive and practical session (bring your gym kit…...only joking), Ben and Tom will take you through an experiment driven approach that will highlight why we often need to stop starting and start finishing.

We will uncover relationships between;

  • Local and Global WIP levels
  • Batch size
  • Bottlenecks
  • Utilisation
  • Arrival rate
  • Push versus Pull
  • Quality
