Kanban Experience Workshop

This day provides you a thorough experience of Kanban. Kanban is based on creating visibility in one’s workflow and then managing the workflow by not allowing work to exceed certain capacity levels.

Doing this allows for smooth workflow and avoids the creation of delays which otherwise create additional work to fix things. (see How Delays Cause Waste, A Main Tenet of Lean). We have found the most effective way to teach Kanban is to provide an experience of it. This day presents the principles behind Kanban as well as the practices in using them.

Come as a team. This course is designed for both individual and team play.  Have your teams experience how teams work together in Kanban.Special pricing available for teams - teams of 4 or more at $250 / person.

For People Doing Scrum. Many people are transitioning from Scrum to Kanban because of Kanban's great flexibility in where it can be used, it's ability to accelerate Agile adoptions and it's higher collaboration with management.  However, many people wanting to stay with Scrum are also recognizing the core Kanban practices can be incorporated into Scrum fairly easily while achieving significant results.  Amongst these are:

  • managing Work In Progress (WIP)
  • using explicit policies to accelerate learning and improve management collaboration
  • using service level agreements

This course will prove useful to those doing Scrum who want to improve their Scrum.  See related blogs:
