Can a process model be mastered in 24 hours? My answer is No. Then you may ask, why this title? I was thinking of writing a master post, which will link all my posts about Kanban and i thought Kanban in 24 hours could catch people’s eyes. Hence this title. I am sorry, i am not going to give any shortcuts. I sincerely believe there is no shortcuts to a place worth going.

Road to Mastery
It took me couple of years as a practitioner to master agile/iterative development. I liked the Road to Mastery model which James Shore has Proposed in his book The Art of Agile development.
1. Follow the Rules (Apprentice)
2. Break the Rules (Journeyman)
3. Ignore the Rules (Master)
I guess, when it comes to Kanban, i am at Stage 1 (Apprentice).
