In the Experts Corner, For the Advanced, we have
Charlie Villare and Joe Berner demonstrating their Monte Carlo simulation tool that predicts delivery probability. This is part 3 in a series on Lean and Kanban
Charlie Vallet and Joe Berner talk on Predicting Delivery with Probablity from a Monte Carlo Simulation Method
The tool is ScrumSim v2 from http://focusedobjective.com/kanbansim_scrumsim/downloads/
The Expert Corner is for those already using Kanban boards with defined WIP Limits.
And reference our AgilePhilly friend Dan Vacanti for more on WIP grooming.

For the rest of us geared toward Beginners, Intermediates, and anyone in general who want more than learning about one tool, Bob Marini presents Traditional, Scrum, Lean, Kanban - what's best for my organization and team ?
Learn more methods for teams to choose the method that fits their needs.
Contrary to common belief, the traditional waterfall method of running projects is alive and well. So what are the unique benefits of using Traditional, Scrum, Lean, Kanban approaches to projects ? Why is one approach better than another for a given project or organization ?
Bob discusses the benefits and challenges of each technique, the situations when one technique fits better than another.
Bob Marini ( MBA, MS, PMP, CSM) has 30+ years in IT and 11 years in Agile, Scrum and Kanban.
