Kanban—A Lively Introduction

Jul 1, 2014 · Durham, United States of America

Quite a bit of the focus for Agile Development has been Scrum and Extreme Programming. But over the past few years, Kanban has been making important progress in the agile community as an “alternative” to Scrum. It has some interesting capabilities that make it, in many cases, easier to implement than Scrum. It also has a stronger connection to the Lean community.
Join experienced Agile Coach & Trainer Bob Galen has he provides you a solid introduction to Kanban. You’ll get a crisp overview of the methodology and learn the keys for effectively implementing it in a variety of contexts. He’ll share from his real-world experiences of successes, and failures, so the session will be well grounded. Finally, we’ll go through a quick, fun, and informative simulation (The Kanban Pizza Game) that will solidify the materials and enable you to try it yourself.
Note: Due to the simulation that Bob will take us through, we have a hard attendance limit of 60 people.
