With this course, I want to help you get started with Kanban at the team level by combining our expertise as consultants with key principles from LeanLean is a holistic approach for creating, running, and improving organizations. It is a mindset expressed as a set of values, principles, methods, practices, and tools to enable continuous innovation and growth..

Kanban can be a great help for modern software and other IT teams. However, many teams struggle to put these powerful principles and techniques into practice in their context.

Fortunately, a large number of authors have written about the key principles explained by David J. Anderson, which I have combined with my personal experience as a business consultant and a Lean and Agile coach in this practical guide to improving agility at the team level. So, if your team is an IT team or software development team, and you want to get started with Kanban, this course is for you. If you are not an IT team, you can still benefit from this course as long as you do knowledge work.
