Scaling agile and effective dependency management have proven mutually exclusive. The state-of-the-art method seems to involve putting 900-1000 people in a sports arena in Germany once every three months and asking them to spend 3 days on analysis activities to map all of the dependencies for the next 3 months of release planning. Large quantities of red string are consumed as they tie themselves in knots.
There is a better, faster, cheaper way! Kanban offers an elegant solution for dependency management that is more effective and costs about 15% of the time, energy and cash, you will spend on scaled agile.
First you must discard timeboxed sprints, embrace flow, instrument, measure and report lead times, implement a simple dynamic reservation system, then use triage tables to determine classes of service based on cost of delay, and classes of dependency management based on class of service and customer expectations.
It is all explained on two simple infographic posters or implemented using a simple mobile application. Just-in-time dependency management, when you need it, where you need it, in the palm of your hand, at your fingertips, and at a fraction of the cost of existing alternatives.
