Excellent slides and talk on Kanban metrics from Mattia
Why should I bother collecting metrics? How can they help me? My CFD is pretty and colourful, but what is it actually trying to tell me? CFD, control chart, lead time distribution, percentiles...Metrics can be daunting to start with but if you know how to interpret them they can really take your Kanban system to the next level - drive continuous improvement and forecast the future!

Tasty, interesting xmas menu, with pork belly pizza and scrummy puddings. However, it was the service which really shone. One of our table was blind, and the skill, care, and understanding shown by our server (female, ex-music student) was exemplary; without fussing, she helped to make everyone feel at home, placing sauces and drinks at convenient arms-reach and noting verbally where they were on the table. Also, the Braille menu was easy to read, and even had amusing anecdotes at the back. Definitely worth a visit if you have Braille-reading friends or colleagues.
