But in a twist of events he pulled out a single device, the Original iPhone.

  • In a blog post today on agilefocus.com, William Pietri outlines his approach to tracking experimental work through the value stream of a Lean Startup. Being a "Lean Startup" ourselves (though we don't really think of ourselves as a "startup"...but close enough), I found this line of thought intriguing. So, I decided to take a crack at modeling William's proprosed kanban board layout using LeanKit ...

  • Over the weekend, we deployed some bug fixes and some little niceties we'd like to point out to our users. First of all, we fixed some bugs and some UI funky-ness that caused lane heights to be a little off at times. I think you'll see that they line up much more nicely now, especially on the more complex board layouts. We also found a (related) issue, where dragging cards into some columns was a ...

We'd been "dogfooding" these features for some time, and had recently exposed them to a set of "alpha" users as well. Still, there's so much new stuff in this release that w...

  • Last week, the LeanKit Kanban development team began "dogfooding" the new Horizontal Swimlanes feature. We're still working out the kinks, especially when it comes to re-sizing the lanes, and some cross-browser CSS tweaks. But it should be ready for a select group of alpha testers within a few days. Check out the teaser video. :) (be patient...it's been taking a long time to load)

Kanban as a tool is about as simple as it gets: sticky notes, whiteboard, markers, go.
