Increase Your Team’s Efficiency with Kanban

Test teams must perform a wide variety of tasks from testing new functions and performing regression tests to helping with bug fixes, producing test reports, and working on test improvements. With all these activities, it is a challenge to keep priorities straight, operate most efficiently, and clearly show stakeholders all that the team is working on. Derk-Jan de Grood shares his experiences with Kanban, a proven method for managing workflow, as a visual tool to help teams allocate resources, reduce waste, and make progress visible to all stakeholders. Learn how you can assign testers to tasks that match their expertise and how improving “flow” will reduce time-to-market and testing costs. With the Kanban process helping you manage test activities, your company’s business managers will finally understand what is happening in testing every day, and you’ll know that everyone is working on the right task to maximize value to the project.

As a senior test consultant at Valori, Derk-Jan de Grood specializes in getting more out of testing by focusing on the value chain, business-IT alignment, and the team’s visibility. Being a passionate speaker, Derk-Jan is at home at major testing conferences where he tries to inspire people and help improve the test profession.
