Slack: how are we doing?

Alright now, but messy. When we have stories our WIP limit is too high.

Action items:

  • Gary will garden the kanban board to remove cards we don’t want any more.
  • Gary will tighten the WIP limit when we start our stories in earnest (and move the story lanes to the top of the board).

Ben pointed out that our process means that we often can’t land things within a few hours, and that this discourages productive use of slack time. We acknowledged and while we would like to change our process to make short time spans more easily productive, we feel that prototyping, learning new technologies, and simply starting something that you know might be paused and turn into waste, are acceptable and useful uses of time.
