Kanban Enterprise Scaling at Bazaarvoice

This is a story of evolution. This is the story of how Bazaarvoice’s 200+ person R&D Team used the Kanban Method to overcome common problems, transform work performance and embark on a journey of self-discovery. Through visualization, safe-to-fail experimentation and applying systems thinking, we changed our company for the better. So, choose the red pill and we’ll take a trip into the Matrix to see how we transcended mere “Agile” practice compliance and evolved to a sustainable continuous improvement culture. There is no meta-model or recipe that can provide the resiliency needed to make a complex organization successful in today’s hyper-competitive knowledge work industries. This is because every company, every organization and every team is different. It’s all about context, and when we understand this, we are better equipped to manage risk, see opportunity and create the conditions for long-term operational excellence.

This presentation will show how we learned to balance demand against capability to deliver software products faster, more predictability and with better quality -- this is the promise of Kanban. We will share actual work performance data to show the impacts of our change management. At Bazaarvoice, we transformed our conversations and culture with Kanban and we hope that by sharing this case study with our neighbors in the community, you will be provided with practical ideas on how you can apply Kanban effectively in your context to begin your own journey to a sustainable improvement culture.
