Managing Agile Projects Using Kanban
In this workshop, participants will get an overview about Kanban and how to use it for managing flow of requests in software development or maintenance projects. In addition, participants will be able to compare Kanban, which is a flow-based management method, to iteration-based agile methods like Scrum, and when it’s recommended to use each one of them.
Participants will also go through many case studies, group activities and discussions, and will exercise managing a simulated project using Kanban.
