Link: Mommy Dojo Kanban – First Month Review

martialartsscrummaster

Right from the beginning of being introduced to Agile concepts in 2013, I appreciated the word “agile” because of its easy cross-over to sports and athletics.

Last year, around the same time that I started Taekwondo classes I also started working with an agile coach on an introductory e-course for agile beginners. As I was newly developing physical and mental agility in training while simultaneously deeply reflecting on and learning new agile concepts, the metaphor of a Scrum Master being like a Black Belt really stuck a cord for me.

Recently I came across another agile-enthusiast who is also a mother, a martial arts practitioner, and a strong advocate for personal Kanban. She authored a blog called  “Scrum Family” from 2008 until 2015. I find her posts light-hearted but strong, engaging and intelligent.

Here is a link to one of my favourite of her posts where she summarizes a successful month-long “Mommy Dojo Kanban” initiative.

She wrote that, “The Mommy Dojo Kanban really works for me. It’s simple, practical and easy to maintain. The horizon is the next seven days only. When that’s done, I simply reset without sweating major analysis or statistics.”

I was encouraged by her enthusiasm, organization and perseverance and am excited to try out a few of her Kanban tips myself.
