|The Wiener process (random or Brownian variation) is scale-invariant (from Wikipedia)|
I'm looking forward to the publication of a basic Kanban definition - Anderson stated it was in the pipeline - as my own feeling is that it should aim to be scale-free, at least over these three levels. Anderson positions Kanban as a process for organisation improvement in the knowledge work space. As such the practices relate to how to visualise work and improve, rather than the specifics of organising teams or indeed software development. At least at the first level of definition - the simplest and sparsest definition - keeping it scale-free should be both possible and useful.
- Write down the problem.
- Think real hard.
