This is a case study about using kanban, holacracy and coaching skills to build a productive, self-organising team. It will explain the basics of these methods, how they combine well, and how they were used to build productive teams at Brightin, a Dutch software company. It is as much a story about success as failure, experimentation and learning. In the end you will learn how leading by values, principles and simple rules beats rituals and rigid processes, and that you can do it in your own projects too.
Arjan is a thirty-something software developer, historian, team leader, agile evangelist and all-round geek who has spent the last few years building great teams using kanban, holacracy and the occasional animated GIF. He is a happily married father-of-two who likes explaining history trivia to his genial dog - who, frankly, is the only one who'll listen.
