Kanban 101

Kanban 101 Abstract -

Are you one of our many members who joined because you heard about Kanban, but really don’t know what it is?  Are you asking yourself questions like

• When would Kanban be right for my organization?

• What does it look like when it’s up and running?

• What changes can we expect if we implement Kanban?

 Well then, this is the session for you.  This is an introduction to the basics of Kanban for knowledge work.

We will learn a bit about the origins of Kanban and the kinds of environments that could benefit the most from it (hint, most organizations). Then we’ll use the ‘Core Principles’ to paint a picture of what a team using Kanban would looks like when it’s up an running.
