Day 1: Monday, August 8

The Executive Track provides the basics of what an executive needs to have his organization begin a transition to Lean-Kanban methods. It includes both an overview of Lean, what it takes to transition to Lean-Kanban as well as experience reports of those who have completed this transition.

The Kanban Track provides a solid introduction to Kanban as well as providing insights to Scrum developers on how to use Lean-Kanban principles to improve their own practices - even while continuing to do Scrum.
