Project and Product Management with Kanban - Plan, Manage and Forecast with Confidence.
Do you want to apply concepts from Kanban, Lean and flow thinking to your work of managing across teams, projects, products? This class will equip you with modern concepts and techniques to manage your initiatives.
Learning objectives

Learn when to start and when to deliver selected ideas, product features, or service requests with a probabilistic approach. 
See and mitigate the risks that could impact schedule and budget.
You have more capacity than you think! Learn how to shape demand to deliver more work without adding more workers. Learn techniques to stay in control even when demand shifts. Apply visual risk profiles and options thinking to select and manage the right work.
Plan and forecast project delivery where some or all of the professional services within the project are being managed using Kanban. Get pragmatic guidance and become a data-driven organization.
Apply flow thinking at project / portfolio level

Our objective is that you take away pragmatic, actionable guidance that you can apply to your managerial work the day you get back to your office!
This course is based on materials from the official Lean Kanban University curriculum, Enterprise Services Planning (ESP) class.
Target audience
This class is targeted at IT and Non-IT people in managing functions involving multiple initiatives, projects or teams requiring scheduling and forecasting. Typical roles we expect in the training would be for instance  Program Managers, Team or Department Leads, Project Managers, Product Managers, Development Leads, or Consultants.
Knowledge of Kanban is a plus but not a required prerequisite for attending.
