The workshop will start off by familiarizing participants with Lean Software Development Concepts, Principles, and Practices by providing them with practical examples and hands-on exercises to help them understand and experience some of them.

The workshop then will walk the participants through a series of steps to help them learn how a "Kanban System" can be implemented to start putting the Lean Principles that they have learned into practice.

The Kanban exercises within the workshop are such that they can be applied to the team's unique needs and circumstances to their work situations. Thus the workshop addresses the team's key challenges and thereby maximizes their learning, retention, and engagement. 

The workshop is for team members, select Vendor Associates, and Managers who are now interested in learning about the Lean Software Development process – and how to implement it using “The Kanban Method”. Each workshop will accommodate multiple teams (up to 4 teams or 20 people, max). The members of the individual teams will be working together in learning the Principles and Practices associated with Lean and Kanban.
