AGILE OVERVIEW FOR EXECUTIVES AND LEADERS

1 or 2 x Day Live Virtual or On Site Instructor Led

This course is for both business and IT executives that are either taking over agile teams or beginning the transition to using an agile framework for project delivery. The primary focus of the training is on the role that executives and management fill in agile project delivery as well as Agile Transformation Roadmap considerations.  This training also provides an overview of the origins of agile and highlights the major agile practices.

KANBAN FUNDAMENTALS

2 or 3 x Day Live Virtual or On Site Instructor Led

This training course teaches students that delivering software functionality using Kanban is radically different from traditional waterfall project management. Rather than plan, instruct and direct, Kanban utilizes a Lean “pull” implementation to guide the work through the process. Using Kanban enhances organization agility, improves visibility of work flowing through the process and provides greater transparency for impediments that inhibit throughput. Participants learn how to implement Kanban and all of the controls and reporting necessary to monitor the flow of work. 
Optional 3d day is available where our instructor will work with your organization to design a roadmap for implementing Kanban using existing processes.  This session culminates with a Kanban board that can be used immediately for making work visible.
