KANBAN IN DER PRAXIS // - Wissen Sie, warum Kanban keine Teammethode ist? - Wie können Sie Ihr bestehendes Kanban-System verbessern? - Worauf sollten Sie achten, wenn Sie Kanban „skalieren“ wollen? - Welchen Vorteil bietet Forecasting gegenüber Schätzungen? - Woran sollte man zuerst arbeiten und was kann noch warten? - Extra: E-Book inside Das Kanban-Board ist aufgestellt, die Swimlanes sind gezogen und die Blockade-Sticker geklebt. Und jetzt? In vielen Unternehmen kann Kanban nicht sein volles Potenzial ausspielen. Oft werden die Hintergründe der einzelnen Praktiken wie zum Beispiel WIP-Limits nicht richtig verstanden und alle Hoffnung wird in eine Methode gesetzt, statt in das eigene Handeln. Kanban hilft zu sehen, wo die Schwachpunkte eines Arbeitssystems liegen und offenbart damit, wie man für den Kunden noch besser Wert generieren kann. Dieses Buch hilft dabei, bestehende Kanban-Systeme neu zu justieren und so das eigene Handlungsrepertoire zu erweitern. Dazu beleuchtet Klaus Leopold detailliert Prinzipien und Funktionsweisen von Kanban, die nicht immer intuitiv sind. Er erklärt typische Problemmuster aus der praktischen Arbeit mit Kanban und zeigt auf, wie sich die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette eines Unternehmens verbessern lässt. Instrumente wie Verzögerungskosten und das Forecasting werden zu strategischen Hilfen und spätestens an diesem Punkt wird klar: Kanban ist keine Teammethode, sondern hat die Optimierung der gesamten Wertschöpfung eines Unternehmens im Blick. AUS DEM INHALT // - Die Wirkmechanismen von Kanban - Kanban-Systeme betreiben und verbessern - Forecasting - Priorisieren mit Verzögerungskosten Systemvoraussetzungen für E-Book inside: Internet-Verbindung und Adobe-Reader oder Ebook-Reader bzw. Adobe Digital Editions.
