Product Management for Kanban Class Curriculum

The second of our new role-based training classes focuses on replenishing your kanban system. We look at the risk management typically undertaken by product managers. Kanban offers very elegant solutions to the problems of large backlog management and prioritization. For anyone who has to decide what to work on now, what to leave until later and what to discard altogether, this is the class for you. If you want to understand how to select work for your kanban system, how to schedule it, how to sequence it and how to define classes of service to control the flow of work through the system, then this is the class for you. This class includes coverage of so called "upstream Kanban" and Real Option Theory. You'll learn to stop using the term "backlog" except for large projects with defined scope, and how to understand a "pool of ideas" as a set of options to be developed or discarded. You'll learn how to filter options based on risk assessment, how to hedge risk with capacity allocation, and how to schedule and select work, pulling it into the kanban system at the optimal time.

This new curriculum is scoped within the Modern Management Framework and will be available in 2-day class format at the Advanced Practitioner level with the LeanKanban University curriculum structure. Product Management for Kanban classes will be available publicly and privately from October 1st 2014 from David J. Anderson & Associates. From November 1st, and Accredited Advanced Kanban Trainer (AAKT) will be able to offer the class through the LeanKanban University certified training program.

Recent attendees of the Masterclass tell you what they valued and why you should attend...

David's approach to training is truly unique. I now have a different lens to view my team's upstream work, current work in progress, and deeper knowledge on how to communicate risk without disrupting the flow of changes throughout the organization.  What David has created with his, Modern Management Framework, is a revolutionary way of thinking for an evolutionary way of change.
