Improving Architectural Refactoring Using Kanban and the Mikado Method

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you ever found yourself making a change to a system only to have dozens of bugs or other issues pop up? Then you make some more changes trying to solve those and, yikes, more are found! You're on the software spelunking trip from hell with the cavern walls collapsing...

Embrace the Zen of the Mikado Method. This powerful approach allows you to discover, visualize, and safely make all the changes you need without losing your mind by giving you input into dependencies that can drive your work priorities. Since it contains a visualization technique, it can help your teams understand legacy code and its impacts and then communicate these to stakeholders. Combine this with a Kanban board to help you visualize your progress, and now you can easily see how well you are making progress.

This 30-minute presentation will step you through the following topics:
  • What is the Mikado Method?
  • How does it work?
  • Exploring the issues and populating the Kanban backlog
  • Why is Kanban a good fit for maintenance?
