Intro to Kanban / Scrumban (a mini-bootcamp)

Workshop Sponsors


Kanban for Software Development and IT Operations

Kanban has become an increasingly popular framework for individuals, teams and organizations to employ as a means of gaining more control over their work processes and maximizing their agility.

Unlike Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP) or Waterfall, Kanban is neither a project management or software development methodology. Rather, it's a simple but powerful framework that can be used in conjunction with these and other methodologies to better understand the way we work. This improved understanding and other features lets us to take better control of our environment, leading to sustainable improvements in agility & productivity.The Benefits of Kanban

There are many advantages to using a kanban system in our work. These include:

  • Greater Flexibility
  • Improved focus on continuous delivery
  • Reduction of wasted work / wasted time
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased efficiency
  • Improved ability to focus
  • Greater sustainability over time

Our Mini-workshop is Useful & Fun!

Our one-day workshop is perfect for IT professionals interested in learning more about how Kanban empowers anyone to benefit from its practice (with a slight focus on applying Kanban within an existing Scrum environment). We provide an complete introduction to Kanban in the morning, then let you experience its simplicity and power for yourself through simulated game play (using the GetKanban game). Pay attention, because the winning team will receive some great prizes!How is this different from other Kanban training?

The purpose of this class is soley to introduce participants to the fundamentals of Kanban. The combination of game simulation with contemporaneous coaching / instruction allows you to gain an intuitive understanding and feel of how the Kanban framework can be applied within your own environments.

Participants interested in learning more of the nuts and bolts behind Kanban, along with practical instruction and guidance on how to begin implementing it can easily move on to the 2-Day Foundational Course and then the Two-Day Advanced courses offered through our partner, David J. Anderson & Associates, or other Lean-Kanban University accredited training organizations.Instructor / Mentor

This workshop will be led by LKU Accredited Kanban Trainer Ajay Reddy. Ajay started his professional career as a software engineer, and spent many years leading development teams and larger IT functions. He now spends the majority of his time helping technology organizations improve performance by successfully adopting agile practices.

Ajay is founder and Chief Process Officer of Code Genesys (a Boston-based IT Solutions company), a managing partner of ScrumDo.com (a cloud-based project management tool for Scrum teams), and an Associate of David J. Anderson & Associates (pioneers of the Kanban Method).

Crowdfunding Deep Dive

Scoring higher than "VC" or "angel" in Google Search, We Take a Deep Dive into What the Jobs Act is Likely to Mean

We have assembled a panel of experts who have been active in understanding this disruptive (in a good way) method of funding a company in exchange for equity... all with out the investor needing the high income requirements of the current qualiied investors. This will open the doors to many more people having access to startups and many startups getting the funding they need.

But not without some challenges...of course.

Based on the Jobs Act (or ARRA), the SEC is working on guidelines, laws, and oversight. And companies like WeFunder, are working on interim steps.

This is formatted like a seminar to give us time to go deeper into this important topic.

Panelists:

Dan Tobin

Shereen Shermak

Doors open at 8:30a for coffee. Light lunch and netwrking to follow.

This should aplify the "one of a kind" shows you've grown to expect, except...perhaps... a bit more twisted!AND we will have copies of our new"Live Animals" CDrecorded at last BarnJamin January!

If you like intimate concerts, like feeling "at home", want to be engrossed in the sound the band and feel the music surround you as it's being created, than this is where you want to experience an EGB show! We'll be performing in the Barn/Studio where Say It was created and where we are currently working on the new album, code named "Loyalty".

Start this VIP eveningat 8pm enoying beverage tasting, hors d'oeurves and food with the band. I believe that we'll be doing some more experiments with fine rum and artisan mixers...Then the EGB will roll out a free form show that will last...well...as long as we feel like! .

Tickets are VERY limited so get them now!

Directions and instructions for parking are in the ticket confirmation.
