Kanban has emerged in Software Development and IT Operations as a method of improving transparency, predictability, and value. Kanban blends Lean thought with first generation agile methodologies. More and more people are having success using kanban systems to manage and monitor their projects. Yet, there are still misunderstandings about what kanban is, where it can be used, and how to get started.Whether you are a project manager, product owner, or consultant, you will benefit from learning a better way to visualize the state of your project, thus making better decisions.
Join Chris Shinkle for a real world approach to how kanban is being used inside organizations big and small. Chris will walk through the process he uses when working with clients to design and implement a kanban system. The information Chris is presenting isn’t pure theory or book knowledge, but practical knowledge based on real world experience.
