Introduction to Kanban Training

Continuing Agile Education with Miloš Zeković


Kanban is a method and Agile framework that enables teams and organizations to visualize their work, also to handle bottlenecks and eliminate waste. If you face with challenges in work organization, with time or process management also, this approach enables you to obtain continuous workflow. Therefore, it is great for teams that have lots of incoming requests that vary in priority and size.

It is often visualized on a Kanban board and each step is represented by a column. Kanban is all about visualizing work, limiting work in progress, and maximizing efficiency or flow. It help teams to learn how they ship their commitment, and to discover where are the bottlenecks in progress.
