Yesterday Karl Scotland and I were able to witness an amazing event with one of the teams here in the UK. A kanban team measurably demonstrated 5x the results of a Scrum team with comparable software experience and capabilities working towards the same goal. Not only this, the same results happened two efforts in a row! On top of all this, the kanban team was able to over-deliver continually during the effort, although we did not count this towards the final measurements.
Amazing evidence in favor of the way kanban teams work, right?
Too bad it was foosball… today we would play for money, but the Scrum team seems to have disappeared after two successive 10-2 games.
