How We Use Blocker Clustering to Improve
As Klaus Leopold and Troy Magennis showed at Lean Kanban Central Europe last year, blockers can be treasures of improvement. This session is an experience report about how teams at Asynchrony — from software delivery to operations — used Leopold’s technique to quantify and identify opportunities for improvement, mitigate risk and improve planning. The session reviews the steps we took, outcomes that we realized and lessons we learned in the process.
