In this talk, I'd like to discuss and debunk several commonly held myths about The Kanban Method.

This talk, which is targeted at beginners, people new to the Kanban Method and people who want do debunk these myths, discusses why it is important that we don't let myths and misconceptions limit our use of the Kanban Method. Unfortunately, we (our industry) often create these myths and misconceptions due to the competitive nature of our business and because of our natural inclination to fear the unknown.

Continuing the work of the Kanban Community (KLRUS, LKNA talks), this talk will explore and debunk 5 specific myths about the Kanban Method that I've seen in my consulting experience. The myths I'll discuss specifically are that The Kanban method...:

1) ... competes with or tries to replace Scrum
2) ... doesn't have iterations
3) ... only works for Dev Ops or Maintenance projects
4) ... is a mini-waterfall methodology
5) ... requires all work items to be the same size and doesn't estimate
