Agile in an Hour with Kanban
Even the Harvard Business Review now thinks there is something to organizing your work in an agile fashion! In fact, if you work isn’t creative, it’ll soon be done by a robot; and if it is creative, you need to be agile. Kanban/Lean is a set of philosophies and practices for getting the right work done right. It can be used by individuals or teams to organize the work in a way that, over time, maximizes value, predictability, and productivity. Can you learn it in an hour? No, but you can get off to a good start! Like any good strategic game, it will take a lifetime to master, but you’ll get results as soon as you start. We’ll visit the key ideas, provide a minimum of mechanism, and maybe even get you excited about getting your work manageable.
Presenter: Ned Horvath
