Take Kanban beyond visualization! We’ll show you how to apply Kanban to complicated problems. In addition to teaching the fundamentals of Kanban, this course is rich with activities that provide you with real world applications of Kanban. We will guide you through mapping value streams and creating a Kanban board. Next, we’ll explore Work in Process (WIP) limits, queues, single-piece flow, metrics, and reports/charts. Additionally, we’ll work through estimation techniques and leverage ideas from Scrum that can complement your Kanban implementation.
