Kanban Un-complicated: Definition of Workflow

This event has passed


A common misconception about Kanban is that it is so lightweight, all you need is a wall, some blue painter’s tape, and sticky notes, and you are an instant Kanban practitioner. What is lacking is an important practice in the Kanban guide: the Definition of Workflow.

In this workshop we will explore the minimum elements required for creating a Definition of Workflow and why they are necessary for your Kanban practice to succeed. Participants will learn how to create or update their Kanban boards with a Definition of Workflow that will help them focus on optimizing the flow of value.
