The purpose of this highly immersive, two-day course is to help students to understand the principles of Agile and in particular, Kanban. They will work in teams to undertake a backlog of work over a series of iterations. In addition to understanding the rules of Kanban, the team will also appreciate how Kanban can be blended with other complementary practices such as Scrum. Students will experience the value of cross-functional teams and the benefits that Agile frameworks such as Kanban provide.
This course is suitable for anyone with no prior knowledge of Agile who is considering, evaluating or involved in a move towards working in (or with) an agile team.
Delegates should be familiar with the content and rationale in the Agile manifesto (http://agilemanifesto.org/) and the Scrum Guide (http://scrumguides.org/).
They would also benefit from reading the following book:
Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for Your Technology Business, David J. Anderson
As a result of participating in the course, delegates will be able to answer the following questions:
Welcomes and introductions
