Kanban Workshop with David Anderson in Paris

yeswekanbansmOCTO et David Anderson organisent la première formation Kanban en France, les 28 et 29 janvier 2010. Cette formation sera dispensée en anglais.

OCTO and David Anderson are holding the first Kanban workshop in France January 28th and 29th.
This intensive 2-day Kanban workshop with the Kanban pioneer provides an introduction to Lean, Pull Systems and Kanban and will explain how established industrial engineering theory can apply to software development process.


Participants in the workshop will learn how to use the simple process of limiting work-in-progress as a driver of change. Kanban is a change management method and a different approach to striking agreements between IT and the business.

You’ll learn how to define the policies that constrain the collaborative game of software development. You’ll learn how to use those policies to manage risk and to reset negotiations and recast them as collaborative problem solving.

Used effectively, Kanban will change you and your organization. If your workplace has been stagnating and you are looking for new ideas to unleash productivity, innovation, collaboration and creativity, take 2 days and come along.
