Starting from an idea, how do you go about discovering, analyzing / estimating, planning / tracking, building, testing, deploying, and documenting your software? [more inside]
Awesome software engineering managers, what has made you successful? I am working with a Dev manager and my gut tells me our process is broken and teams are not working to their potential. The current manager is spouting the benefits of Kanban and has removed any of the normal Agile stuff ( storypoints, retros, sprints ). Last quarter they completely missed on the Roadmap and the team seems disengaged. Leadership is scared to lose talent and is coddling our engineering team. Help me instill a lightweight process and culture than gets results and keeps people happy. What is working for you?

Does an app with my desired characteristics exist? [more inside]
Do you use Kanban as your personal productivity system? [more inside]
