Maybe you’ve heard a little about Kanban and want to learn more. Maybe you’ve started using Kanban and want some pointers on what pitfalls to avoid. Maybe your current Agile methodology is failing and you’re looking for a different approach. Whatever your reasons for desiring more exposure to Kanban, this talk is for you. This session will walk attendees through the fundamentals of Kanban using real world examples as the basis for the discussion. With the help of an engaging exercise, we will explain what Kanban is and what Kanban isn’t and give you the knowledge you need to get started.
