Applying Scaled Portfolio Kanban

Learn about Scaling Kanban for the entire Portfolio

Apply the power of Kanban beyond just a team to have an impact on the entire organization.

“What are our teams working on?” “How well does our execution match up with our stated strategy?” “Are we as an organization efficient, effective and predictable?” Leaders across most organizations want to know the answers to these questions. 

This workshop is for anyone who has asked these questions or wants to help the organization find the answer to these questions. This class will help you set up a Kanban system that helps your organization continuously inspect and adapt the value delivery process.  You will gain greater visibility into what team(s) across the organization are working on and what is in the way of getting value delivered.
