About the Program

Agile practices are sweeping through the project management industry. Agile is being used in industries as varied as software development to organizational leadership and news reporting. Agile projects are 4-times more likely to be successful than traditional waterfall projects, according to the Standish Group.

Lean and Kanban practices are at the heart of many Agile practices. These practices are most often associated with Toyota’s manufacturing model. However, they are broadly applicable to project management.

In “Kanban Essentials: Improving How We Work,” Alan Zucker demonstrates how we can better manage our projects by using these techniques. Participants will:
Participate in a hands-on exercise that demonstrates reducing the amount of work going through the system actually increases output and value;
Recognize the 8-types of waste that are part of our lives as knowledge workers; and
Learn the basics to set-up and maintain a Kanban board, as well as conduct an effective daily stand-up.

These practices will improve how you manage your projects work. Implementing the Kanban board and daily-ups will:
Improve transparency to the team’s work and its status;
Increase individual accountability to assigned tasks; and
Promote collaboration among team members.

Free parking will be available.
