Kanban is still accompanied by many myths and misunderstandings even after many years of its use. Often it is misunderstood as just a task board. But in reality, this method is much more comprehensive and will greatly help you identify sources of waste and eliminate them. So in this Kanban training session, you will learn the basics and how to continuously improve your team’s efficiency.
Are you also finding the content of your sprints constantly changing? Together we will compare how Kanban method differs from the Scrum framework. And you’ll also learn when it’s more beneficial to use Kanban than Scrum with your team. Although many companies still consider only the Scrum framework to be agile, in many large companies Kanban still represents more than 30 percent of all agile teams.
Let’s talk about the types of waste and how you identify them. You will also be introduced to Value Stream Mapping in the training and learn a number of practical lessons on how to use it with your team.
Kanban training is also recommended for new scrum masters, as they will often encounter its use in their teams. But it will also be used by members of agile teams interested in this topic, product developers, agile coaches, or project managers or internal auditors. You will be guided through the course by an experienced trainer who has a lot of experience in using and training Kanban.
