WHY KANBAN WITH KNOWLEDGE21?

Knowledge21 is a global organization, present in the United States, Europe and Latin America, focused on Digital Transformation of companies willing to embrace True Agile practices.

Our classes are dynamic, engaging and based on real scenarios. We do prefer group discussions and creative thinking over the traditional slide-based lecture. We provide an environment that facilitates the exchange of experiences between students and with the trainer.

In two days, you will practice the concepts of Kanban and will learn how to overcome challenges, such as

  • Teams with specialists

  • Unplanned items

  • Multiple clients

  • Development and maintenance of different products

  • External dependencies

  • Extending Agile for the whole organization

Come and discover why more and more people are applying KANBAN, even those that already apply SCRUM!

The theory always comes after practicing, in a “pull system for teaching”.
