The Melbourne Kanban Meetup is intended to be the home of Kanban for the Melbourne agile / management / leadership community. We've renamed this from the "Limited WiP Society" as we wanted it to be more reflective of what we talk about.
Many people are using various aspects of agile, however there is a great deal of depth and knowledge in the worldwide Kanban community that has not yet become so well known in Australia. The purpose of this group is to share and grow Kanban knowledge and make connections for people interested in Kanban. We hope that Kanban can become known as more than "Just a board" and used to it's full potential to help evolve and transform organisations to better serve their customers and have greater prosperity for the future. We believe that Kanban can and should be applied to other contexts outside of software and technology therefore we encourage people to try it in their different contexts.
Once again we're joining with our friends from across the ditch (Wellington Limited WiP Meetup) to bring you another exciting meetup with international speakers. This month is about Strategic Development with Wardley Mapping.
Strategy is more than just stringing together buzzwords. Strategy work presupposes that the environment and the factors influencing it are known. With Wardley Maps and the accompanying Strategy Cycle, Simon Wardley has created effective tools that make strategy accessible to everyone. In this session we will introduce you to the Strategy Cycle and Wardley Maps and show how to make the best use of both.
After the session, you will understand the importance of situational awareness in strategy development and how to use Wardley Maps for this purpose.
Mathias, Marius and Florian have met in the agile, lean and leadership community of Hamburg on different occasions and discovered their enthusiasm for Wardley Maps and strategy work almost simultaneously. Mathias is an Agile Coach and Kanban Enterprise Coach. Marius is an Agile Coach and Entrepreneur. Florian comes from product management and is now working as Service Delivery Manager.
