Kanban is a lightweight method focused on visualizing the software development workflow, maintaining a steady pace of work and balancing demand and team capacity. The key benefits it brings to companies are the following ones:

  • Accelerates development
  • Strengthens the collaboration between the stakeholders in a natural way
  • Optimises resources
  • Increases product quality Kanban works both in agile and plan-driven organizations.

It requires relatively little effort to put in place and is suitable for both small and large teams. The following topics are covered in the course:

  • Moving from a “push” system (based on forecast demand) to a “pull” system (based on actual demand; Just-In-Time)
  • The importance of limiting and controlling the Work-In-Progress (WIP)
  • Identifying and resolving bottlenecks and blocking issues
  • Establishing policies that encourage self-organization and collaboration between teams
  • Metrics and control charts in Kanban
  • Reducing development cycle and multi-tasking

This course is a must for everyone who needs to rationalize project workflow, resources and management.
