Card Wall

This book is about how card walls help to level the flow and maximize the throughput for software delivery. Many books have covered Agile, and several of its principles, practices, and tools, but none have taken a deep look at card walls and the principles behind them.

In Stand Back and Deliver, the authors-- Pollyanna Pixton, Niel Nickolaisen, Todd Little, and Kent McDonald  (senior leaders experienced in several industries and organizations)—make the following statement: 

“Through our experiences and sharing stories, we found that a collection of tools apply to how organizations approach their work, especially work that involves change and innovation; when used in moderation and in conjunction with each other, these tools can have a dramatic impact on the success of the organization”, Software development is all about change and innovation.  And organizations that successfully apply Agile to software development shortly find themselves using a collection of tools that support Agile. To name a few: Continuous Integration server, automated tests, automated scripts, IDEs with refactoring capabilities, and the card wall (physical and/or virtual).

Below are a few photos of physical card wall:
