Scrum might be the most popular agile delivery framework, but it is by no means the only one.

Scrum can be an effective way to deliver a product or service with a cross-functional team it has numerous drawbacks which limit its applicability in many contexts. If your only exposure to Kanban has been through the use of work boards, you may be surprised to learn that it provides a complete alternative to Scrum. It starts from where your team currently is by respecting its current state but enables them to evolve delivery practices in a value-focused manner. Unlike Scrum, which is a prescriptive method, Kanban empowers the team to make decisions about roles, artifacts and ceremonies. Kanban can be applied within project and operational contexts making it a more versatile method for increasing agility.  This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of Kanban and give you hands-on practice with the tools you need to introduce it within your team.
