Course Description: In this 2 day course, we delve into why Kanban works so well both as a work management and change management approach. We look at the benefits of Kanban compared to plan-driven approaches, particularly in complex environments with a lot of churn. We examine some of the theoretical foundations for empirical control methods, and the economic realities of software development and operations that make Kanban so compelling.
Leaning Outcomes & Objectives:
