Meeting Topic:  

Get KanBan!

 

Meeting Learning:

This month, Troy Tuttle will lead the group in the Get KanBan game. This game teaches the basics of KanBan and is a great way to introduce the concepts of flow and WIP to your organization.

 

Meeting Description:

Kan Ban is a core tenant of Lean thinking.  When organizations and teams use it, they often realize a couple of benefits very quickly; the visualization of flow and identification of bottlenecks in their process.  Some other aspects of lean thinking also help further the benefits; cumulative flow diagrams and specialization vs. multi-functional skills. 

Join us at this month's meeting to get a better understanding of these concepts and how you might be able to recreate this discussion in your organization by using the Get KanBan game.
