Kanban Foundations

Manage your team or organisation’s workflow more effectively using the principles and concepts of Lean and Kanban.

Looking for a better way to manage your team or organisation’s workflow? This introductory course will show you how to use Kanban and Lean to manage your tasks and workflow more effectively, reducing your delivery cycle and increasing efficiency.

 

Boost your Scrum team’s current practices, or increase the productivity of just about any team. Get the skills to plan and manage your backlog of tasks, and learn how to create a visual map of your work—helping you get a handle on what needs to be done and in what order.

 

You’ll learn through discussion, presentations, hands-on exercises and practical activities from experienced trainers who are well-versed in Lean and Kanban. Much of the course is built around a full Kanban simulation game so you’ll be learning by doing.
