Working with Kanban Boards

Working with Kanban boards is an overview workshop on the values of using a Kanban approach in any project management framework, including the values and the steps to create a Kanban board. Students will learn about how to set up their own board and see some different situations that may arise during their workflow. The course will end with a demo and an interactive Kanban board using an online platform. Students will be encouraged to log in and use a live Kanban board and work together to build out the project assigned. The ability to create and use a Kanban board with a good understanding of how they work and why they are so effective will influence your future projects, whether they are Agile projects, Waterfall projects or a tailored approach.
