Join us for an exciting evening of learning and fun with Featureban! Featureban is a game that simulates a work process and helps teams learn how to implement and use Kanban boards effectively. In this meetup, you'll get a chance to play the game and learn from experienced Kanban practitioners and coaches.
Whether you're new to Kanban or have some experience with it, Featureban is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the principles and practices of this agile methodology. You'll learn how to visualize your workflow, limit work in progress, manage flow, and continuously improve your processes.
During the meetup, we'll provide all the necessary materials and instructions for playing the game. You'll work in teams to simulate a work process and move cards through different stages of a Kanban board. We'll also have experienced facilitators who can guide you through the game and help you learn from your experiences.
This meetup is suitable for anyone interested in agile methodologies, including software developers, project managers, product owners, and agile coaches. Whether you're looking to improve your team's processes or just want to have fun while learning, we invite you to join us for this engaging and interactive meetup.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn and have fun with Featureban! RSVP now and bring your curiosity and enthusiasm for agile methodologies. We look forward to seeing you there!
In 2023, the Kanban Community of Practice is moving to the 1st Thursday of the month, with Public Meetups being held in January, April, July, and October
What is a Community of Practice?
A Community of Practice develops over time, by committed members engaging in many “informal conversations” about a shared domain of interest, creating a set of cases and stories that become a shared repertoire for their practice, whether they realize it or not.

What is the Agile Denver Kanban CoP?
The Agile Denver Kanban CoP is a long-running meetup that started in June of 2011. We are a "Community of Practice, whose core members are practitioners that have regularly engaged with each other now over a number of years. Our meetups generally consist of us sharing our personal experiences and stories, and in the process learning from each other more about how to apply lean thinking, lean management (leadership), and agile principles, along with pull, flow, kanban, and system thinking concepts. Our specific focus is on how to catalyze and manage change, to improve business workflow processes, and to predictably forecast and answer the question “When will it be done?” We are associated with the broader Agile Denver (meetup) group, which has several other "special interest groups" (SIGs) associated with it, of which we are one. And we are also connected with the U.S. and global Lean Kanban community.
