The ride, which follows the same route as the Boston Marathon, promises to be even bigger and better than last year! 100% of the proceeds will go to Dana-Faber and The Jimmy Fund in their fight to find a cure for cancer and to care for those affected by the disease. The ride will also pay tribute to the victims of 2013's Boston Marathon bombing, including slain MIT Police officer Sean Collier.

Lean Kanban Kickstart for Software Development & IT Operations

Why Kanban?

  • Simple & Easy - Starts with What You're Already Doing and Makes Your Practices More Effective
  • Improved Focus & Flexibility
  • Techniques for Reducing Wasted Time & Work
  • More Reliable Forecasting & Planning Capabilities
  • Increased Efficiency
  • More Sustainable Over Time
Kanban for Software Development & IT Operations

Kanban is a powerful framework that maximizes existing ways of working by visualizing work, improving shared understandings of the policies around it, and exposing the influence of the systems in which we operate.

Though simple to use, lurking beneath Kanban's surface is a wide array of scientifically-based methods and techniques that supercharge its basic capabilities for those choosing to dive more deeply.What to Expect

Kanban is designed to deliver benefits at any level of adoption, emphasizing improved understanding over immediate change. Moreover, teams and organizations are free to improve over time at a pace best suited to their own needs.

This half-day workshop prepares participants with all they need to know in order to begin using Kanban in their environments right away. Here's a quick overview of what you'll come away with:

  • A Basic Mastery of Core Lean / Kanban Principles & Practices
  • Orientation to New Metrics and How to Use them to Improve Planning and Drive Improvement
  • A Preliminary Analysis of Your Organization's / Teams Sources of Demand (work requested) and Dissatisfaction (business outcomes that aren't being met)
  • The Value Stream Mapping of your Current Work Process
  • Your Initial Kanban Board Design for Visualizing Work & Measuring Performance (created using ScrumDo.com -- an on-line project management and collaboration tool)
  • A three-month Gold Level Subscription to ScrumDo.com (a $210 value)
  • Follow-up Remote Coaching & Mentoring (limited)

And if your organization is already practicing Kanban and needs to quickly bring more teams up to speed (or on-board new employees), this kickstart program is the perfect solution.

Scrumban for Scrum Teams

"75% of organizations using Scrum will not succeed in getting the benefits they hope from it."
-- Ken Schwaber (co-creator of Scrum)

Scrum is an incredible success, yet...

Many organizations change the process instead of themselves when a need for change is revealed.

Organizations tend to focus on improving the wrong things because systemic issues aren't readily identified.

The challenges Scrum teams face will vary, and their ability to overcome them often have little to do with Scrum itself (or how well / poorly teams practice it).

Scrumban can help. Scrumban is the application of flow-based principles (kanban systems) or the layering of the Kanban Method within a Scrum context. During this kickstart, we'll highlight how Scrumban helps organizations avoid becoming trapped in the "75% stalemate."Our Kickstart is Useful & Fun!

Our half-day "bootcamp" is perfect for IT professionals interested in learning more about how Kanban empowers anyone to benefit from its practice and then implementing it in their own context.

This event is highly interactive, with key learnings emphasized through group exercises. Participants also get to experience Kanban's simplicity and power for themselves through simulated game play (using the GetScrumban game -- our on-line, educational game that walks users through some typical scenarios and evolutions in thinking).How is this different from other training?

The combination of game simulation with contemporaneous coaching / instruction allows participants to gain an intuitive understanding and feel of how the Kanban framework can be applied within their own environments. Our instructors have extensive experience helping large organizations using Kanban to scale Agile more effectively (10,000+ IT Professionals) to helping small teams become masters of their domain. Participants will learn about some of the common traps and pitfalls around:

  • Time-boxed vs. Flow-based projects
  • Pull principles & the Theory of Constraints
  • Visualizing workflow effectively (the way we work)
  • Visualizing policies (how we work)
  • Managing shifting priorities
  • Effectively dealing with interrupt work and multi-tasking
  • Manging flow
  • Balancing demand and capacity
  • Managing external dependencies
  • And more...

Easily move on to our 2-Day Foundational and 2-Day Advanced courses with this Kickstart under your belt.Instructor / Mentor

This kickstart will be led by the only LKU Accredited Kanban Trainer in the Boston area -- 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 a former Associate with David J. Anderson & Associates (the acknowledged "father" of the Kanban Method). His book on Scrumban is slated to be published later this summer / fall.
