Kanban Foundations Workshop

Kanban Training Course Description

The Kanban Method has become a powerful way for Agile teams and organizations to visualize work, identify and eliminate bottlenecks, and achieve measurable operational improvements in throughput and quality.

This 1-day foundational workshop introduces the core concepts of Lean and just-in-time (JIT) production and prepares participants to apply Kanban to their work (including when to use Kanban alongside or instead of other Agile frameworks like Scrum)

With hands-on group exercises and real-world case studies, participants will experience principles that underpin the Kanban method while gaining an appreciation for the key benefits and impact the Kanban Method will have on their teams and across their organizations.

From Kanban newbie to active practitioner, this workshop is role agnostic and is geared towards anyone looking for a deeper understanding of Kanban and how to apply on their teams, wherever their organization is on their journey, from enterprise to startup.
