Training: June 30 and July 1

Training: Kanban System Design – June 30 and July 1 (2 days)

  2 days

Do you find customer demands overwhelming and the process chaotic?

Are your customers saying your team takes too long to deliver or that they have no idea what your team is busy doing?

Do you have a growing backlog with requests months to years old?

Are people with critical skills not available when you need them?

Do you feel like priorities are changing all the time or that you don’t know what they are?

Are you lacking an effective process for reducing time to market, for managing bottlenecks, and for managing your application portfolio?

Are you falling behind with your own professional development?

During this two day workshop, you will learn how to establish practices that help minimize the challenges identified above.

You will learn how to reduce work delivery times, prioritize demand based on team capacity, reduce firefighting and minimize the negative effects of unplanned work.

You will practice the design of a Kanban system via game simulations, group exercises, practical examples, and engaging classroom type teaching. You will also see how Kanban systems help improve team morale and trust with customers.

The workshop incorporates the theory outlined in the book that originally defined the Kanban Method: Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for Your Technology Business. Chapter 4 of this book describes Dragos’ pioneering contributions to this field. You will get a copy of this book in pdf format.

After successful completion of this course, attendees will receive membership to the Lean Kanban University (LKU), a certificate of completion and access to the members’ only sections of the LKU website.

Note: This course is not on the list on the LKU site because it is a private course, but all participants will be entered in the LKU site by the teacher and will receive an LKU certificate.
