Kanban Developer Workshop

2 days


The Kanban method is an emerging methodology for software development. It evolves your current software development processes through refinement and continuous improvement while leveraging Lean practices. Building visual, iterative, and lean solutions from what is known is the cornerstone of Kanban projects. The ultimate goal is to build quality software products using modern methods.

With Kanban, a picture is truly worth a 1,000 words. The centrepiece of Kanban is the Kanban Board representing the visualization of the workflow and the current state of development. Kanban boards distinguish the Kanban process as a uniquely visual device for managing software processes and workflows.

This a two-day course, where delegates start with an understanding of the fundamentals of Kanban and conclude with advanced techniques, such as Scrumban. Learn in a collaborative and open environment where delegates experience Kanban through participation.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
