In this high-energy, interactive, and fun one-day class, you’ll be introduced to the essentials of Kanban. Kanban is a method for managing the creation of Products with an emphasis on continual delivery, while not overburdening the Development Team.

Like Scrum, Kanban promotes continuous collaboration and encourages active, ongoing learning and improvement by defining the best possible Team workflow. This class is full of practical, real world techniques, which can be implemented immediately at your workplace. Hands-on exercises demonstrate key concepts and let you experience the benefits of Kanban firsthand. You’ll learn to visualize what you do each day, how to limit the amount of work in progress, and how to enhance your workflow.
