Kanban är en metod som avser att identifiera, prioritera och åtgärda moment i en process för att exempelvis få ett agilt projekt att flyta på effektivt. Kursen fokuserar på att ge dig de grundläggande verktygen för att komma igång med Kanban och därigenom driva de viktigaste förändringarna i ert arbetssätt. Den tar även upp hur Kanban kan kombineras med andra agila metoder.
During this course you will learn what Kanban is, and how it can be used as a tool to augment and improve virtually any process. You will get answers to questions like:
- What is Kanban and why should I consider using it?
- How will Kanban augment my organisations current way of working?
- Does Kanban work in combination other "Agile Methods"?
- How do I get started with Kanban?
The primary goal of the course is to give you the basic tools you require to get started using Kanban and drive the improvements that it will reveal to be necessary. It will also focus heavily on using Kanban to maximise value delivery within your organisation. The course will also provide a short introduction to other "Agile Methods" such as Scrum and Lean Startup and show how they can be melded with Kanban to create custom solutions that best suit your organisational context.
Kanban Fundamentals is a very practical course with many exercises and workshops that will not only help to solidify the concepts you are learning, but provide you with very practical actions to perform upon return to your organisation. The focus will be on addressing practical issues that you experience rather than learning in a theoretical context.
As Kanban is a tool that can be used universally across industries the target audience for this course is very broad. There will be a focus on software development to provide context to the course, but it is by no means a course aimed at developers, anyone working in software organisations will find benefit from attending Kanban Fundamentals.
