The most crucial ressource is systematically supplied. In our trainings (presence/virtual) we impart contents of professional methods understable and practical.
We were so impressed by the Kanban in IT method that we decided that it should be included it in our portfolio, as a complementary method to Leanability. However, we prefer to drop the restrictive 'in IT' because Kanban is found in a much wider range of fields.

Kanban is a method for implementing change that can be used for carrying out evolutionary improvements within a company. The changes begin at the place where the company currently is, i.e. there is no need for major restructuration and complex plans before improvements can begin.
Kanban is an excellent alternative for those who want to improve their business, without causing a company-wide revolution like those brought about by many agile methods.
Kanban can be used as a stand-alone method or as a 'teamboard' for projects, programmes and/or portfolios. Regardless of the context, it is the preferred method for gaining a clear overview.
The cost of the manual required will be charged separately. All amounts exclude VAT at 20%.
