Marcus,
You've stated in other threads that Kanban can work with any agile methodology, so I was surprised to see that chapter 9 in the book is on Planning and Estimating. Is the intent to give people a way to plan and estimate in case they're not following some other methodology, or is there a version of P and E that works best with Kanban?

Thanks,
Burk

Hi,


chapter 9 is really just a collection of practices and concepts that teams that are using flow-based approaches (that kanban often leads too) can benefit from using.

It also shows on the problems with some of the practices that we take for granted (such as story points) and what you can use instead.

Finally we talk about the need for planning and estimating and that many teams, that use kanban and other agile practices for awhile, see goo away. The need for big plans for long periods of time is not that valueable for teams that can change fast and be agile in what they can do and deliver.
