Net Objectives Lean-Kanban Conference in Association with Lean-Kanban University - Resources

*NOTE: In this case, after the Event Conference page had 'aged out', it was copied into a Resource Content Type. It had the links to Slide Resources which were not listed in the Resource area by not setting a Category for them. This was done as an additional security measure? as this was a low-cost, Net Objectives sponsored event which would give slide access to attendees preferentially. Conversely, Agile2011 Slides were created as Resources, their Categories were set so they displayed on their own in the Resource area, the Conference and Session Date/Time were listed.*

Net Objectives was proud to present, in conjunction with the Lean-Kanban University, a 2-day, 2-track conference on Lean, Kanban and technical practices. This conference was designed for executives, managers, developers, testers, leads, project managers, QA - virtually anyone interested in improving their software development efforts - whether as part of an IT organization or as a product development group. Net Objectives's unprecedented range enabled us to present coverage of all of the methods required for Was created as a resource with links to Slides as the ELean-Kanban adoption in an enterprise. By providing the conference in this fashion, attendees were presented with a cohesive method of transitioning their organization (or team) to better methods. The methods presented were a combination of those from industry leading experts as well as some of our own leading edge methods. Our presenters have made presentations to such prestigious conferences as LSSC11, LESS10, LKBE10, LSSC10, SQE ADP, SQE BSC, Agile and more.
