DESCRIPTION

 

Are you struggling with implementing Agile in your organization? Is the change too prescriptive? Are your teams overburdened and less productive but still too resistant for a revolutionary change?

Choose the “Alternative Path to Agility” and implement an evolutionary and humane Change Management Method which doesn’t change your process but improves it.

 

 

The Kanban Method provides pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance for successful evolutionary change. It starts with what you do now and respects current roles, responsibilities and job titles. This allows organizations to evolve business processes gradually, define and use relevant metrics to measure progress, and significantly reduce the risk associated with complex change programs.

If your team is overwhelmed, Kanban can help you to get your work under control. Kanban is a new technique for dynamically managing your process and revealing bottlenecks.

This 1-day training, taught in English, provides the skills and knowledge you need to apply Kanban in your work and learn how to determine what to work on now, what to leave until later and what to take off the to-do list forever.

This course is taught by RAVNEET KAUR an Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT) with over 10 years of experience coaching and training teams and managers in IT and Engineering Sector.
