Grateful

for the people we met
for the experiences we shared
for the leanings we made
for the attention we payed to each other
for the places we traveled
for the belief
for the music in my life
for the conversations we had every day
for the story we have written
for the trust we had
for the things you said that made me a better person
for the magical moments I couldn’t believe
for the new perspective I got
for the best 10 month
for the shock of reality


I am grateful

Doing things differently! free ebook

The first team at Jimdo to use Kanban began in October of 2010. Shortly thereafter, whiteboards and sticky notes spread quickly throughout the whole company. The Kanban Implementations took on different forms, and ranged from pure visualisation of tasks to different types of WIP-limits and the systematic use of models for continuous improvement (Kaizen). It soon became apparent using Kanban at the team level was very useful, but from the business perspective, it was in no way enough. Two things needed to happen: Company-wide Alignment of all teams and Leadership. This is especially true for a company like Jimdo which constantly doubled its head count every two years, and now has employees on 3 different continents. In this presentation, you will learn how Jimdo established itself in order to coordinate the whole company and pull everything together. What tools and practices proved useful? What lessons were learned? What hurdles were overcome? What role did the Management play? And just what exactly is a Teamverløtung?

 

 

We have given a talk about this at the lean kanban hamburg event. Here is a video of the presentation
