Getting Started with Kanban: Visualizing your work & establishing flow
2 day public or private workshop for leaders and/or practitioners
When teams or organizations have problems delivering, its rarely a problem with the people. I've seen too many groups of really talented people working long and hard but not getting anything done. Throwing more people at this problem only serves to complicate the issue rather than solve the problem. The solution lies in fixing the issues that the people face as they are working.
Kanban is a Lean process framework that forces our issues to the surface so we can improve our ability to add more value with less stress. When learning and improving is done consistently, you create a culture of learning that can transform your entire organization for the better.
Attend and learn to tame the choas by making visualization your superpower, putting a focus on focus, and embarking on a journey of continuous improvement. You might even leave with a Kanban system design!
