Kanban is probably the simplest commonly used approach to software development and project management. With such a simple tool, which in terms of required practices prescribes close to nothing, we don't expect much change of the way we work. After all we are advised to start without changing our process much when introducing Kanban.
The interesting thing which is observed in Kanban teams in the long is something which is called emergent behavior - best practices which are seamlessly introduced without much conscious effort. What more it's pretty common that exactly the same practices were resisted when introduced by direct management action before.
The session shows how Kanban, as an alternative to top-down approaches, can be used to support introduction of best engineering and organizational practices using a few real-life examples.
