Agile Denver Kanban CoP

DHI Group, Inc.

Agile Denver Kanban CoP: is a community of practice for practitioners interested in sharing and learning with others about applying lean thinking, lean management (leadership), and an agile mindset, along with pull, flow, kanban, and system thinking concepts to assist with catalyzing and effectively managing change to improve their business workflow processes, and to predictably forecast and answer the question “When will it be done?” It is one of several "special interest groups" (SIGs) of the broader Agile Denver user group and is also associated with the global Kanban University, and global Lean and Kanban community. Hi All, Our next Agile Denver Kanban CoP meetup will be on Thursday (02/13), from 6:00-8:00 pm. The first hour of our CoP meetup consists of a Deep-dive discussion. One or more CoP core members facilitate this discussion on a specific topic, related to applying and using lean, flow, pull, or kanban concepts, and selected by them from a list of candidate topics (options) that the CoP maintains. Please note the Deep-dive discussions are not limited to being introductions to lean, flow, pull, or kanban concepts. However, they are open to all who want to attend regardless of their experience level. After a short break, the second hour of our CoP meetup typically consists of a "Lean Coffee" format, where everyone attending puts forth questions, issues, topics, etc. to be considered related to applying and using lean, flow, pull, or kanban concepts, and these can be at any experience level. If you're not familiar with Lean Coffee, a quick Google search can provide a number of brief overviews. These Lean Coffees are a great way to help identify potential future Deep-dive topics of interest. If any of that sounds interesting to you, we hope you'll join us! Take care, Frank www.vissinc.com Additional Location Info: Plenty of visitor parking directly in front of the building along Greenwood Plaza Blvd. Dan Wyks or Jonathan Ray from DHI will need to badge us into the building, and up to the 4th-floor suite. After 6:00 pm access is limited, so please arrive promptly. After 6:05 we'll likely not have anyone posted at the door. NOTE: seating is limited, so please RSVP early, and kindly update your RSVP ASAP if plans change and you'll not be attending. It is very helpful to have an accurate count as possible to set up prior and to make sure we do not turn away anyone on the waiting list unnecessarily.

Agile Denver Kanban CoP

Kaiser Permanente Colorado IT Center

Agile Denver Kanban CoP: is a community of practice for practitioners interested in sharing and learning with others about applying lean thinking, lean management (leadership), and an agile mindset, along with pull, flow, kanban, and system thinking concepts to assist with catalyzing and effectively managing change to improve their business workflow processes, and to predictably forecast and answer the question “When will it be done?” It is one of several "special interest groups" (SIGs) of the broader Agile Denver user group and is also associated with the global Lean & Kanban University, and global Lean and Kanban community. Hi All, This is a general message reminding you that the Agile Denver Kanban SIG meets the 2nd Thursday of each month, except for the month when Mile High Agile occurs (usually April, but has been in May too). Many of us who attend the Agile Denver Kanban SIG also volunteer to help with the MHA Conference, so we limit our WIP in this month. And we also take off the month of December, again most of us are just way to busy this month as well, and we practice what we preach by Limiting our WIP. Please make sure to come back and check out this site often though for postings as our Agile Denver Kanban SIG meetup dates get closer each month. In the meantime check out our past meetups​ to see what's been happening with topics and comments. We hope you'll decide to join us too! Take care, Frank www.vissinc.com
