Kanban Workshop – Foundation Course


Short time-boxes give more frequent opportunity to measure progress and inspect software but force development items to be smaller, smaller development items are often too small to be valuable and difficult to identify. Pure continuous flow Kanban systems work very well when your backlog includes minor enhancements and support related items. There is no need here for strict time-boxes, instead a regular continuous flow optimized process for delivering predictable value with no bottle necks. More and more organizations are adopting Lean and Kanban as part of their Agile Transformation. This course will help you understand Kanban Principles and also Agile, Scrum and Kanban all fit together to deliver value for your organization. This course is very much suitable for beginners in Kanban.
