Course Overview
Summary: 

Implementing Kanban for Your Team (IKFYT) is a course which provides a solid understanding of the principles, key tenets, and practices for implementing a lean-agile approach.  The course is specifically intended for the ‘whole’ team – all skills necessary to define, prioritize, build, and implement increments of business value. 

Kanban is an effective approach for delivering software solutions that focuses on the flow of work to reduce delays, increase quality, and manage demand with capacity. Kanban is based on iterative development practices and Lean Thinking. Kanban provides significant visibility into how a team works. It is superior to first generation methods because it enables a better relationship with management, can be tailored to a wider range of environments, and is generally easier to adopt.

Implementing Kanban for Your Team provides the basics for teams just beginning their implementation of Lean-Agile as well for teams that are just starting to work together. Participants leave with hands on knowledge and actionable steps to achieve iterative software development and delivery. Students will learn the basics of Kanban and ihow to mplement it, with or without iterations, in their environment.

All Net Objectives consultants have hands on practical experience with applying Lean thinking to the delivery of software technology solutions. Our approach is to show how Lean applies to an incremental realization of software features and systems and how to apply practices that improve the team’s ability to deliver.
 

Course Objectives: 

This course prepares teams to implement Kanban either with or without iterations. Note that prior to the course, we will work with the customer to determine what dynamics need to be considered. IKFYT covers all aspects of the Lean-Agile framework and practices needed by team members. After this training, teams will be able to start using Kanban.

We highly recommend consulting and coaching services to be included with this training offering, or consider the Net Objectives Kanban Startup Package. This is especially true if your teams have little or no iterative development experience.
