If you are an IT manager or CIO that has heard the word 'Kanban' thrown around your professional circuit and want to learn more - this session with Monica Georgieff, a freelance Agile/Lean Coach and Marketer, is for you!

The common misconception is that Kanban is merely a task board that helps you visualize your work.

Kanban happens to be much more than that and the way to exploit its potential is to apply it in full!

The Kanban method encompasses the principles of the Lean methodology, aspects of Agile and six core practices that help teams achieve their efficiency goals.

We will go over the history of the method, the first steps to applying it as well as the benefits and challenges you can expect as a new Kanban practitioner.

  • For such a long time I wanted to dive into the methodology of Kanban and learning more about it. I have been exposed to it on the sidelines and was always intrigued. Thanks so much for this very informative session that provides a missing link for me as a consultant working with clients. I always run into the issue of how we organise projects and tasks so they get done. This gives a great and easy to follow framework to do just that. Great introduction to Kanban!
