This skill path will teach you how to design, build, operate and measure a kanban system to achieve significant benefits for you, your team and your organization.
We will talk about how Kanban can increase productivity and throughput.. By applying Kanban you can achieve a sustainable pace of development or throughput since Kanban flushes out issues that impair performance and enable teams to focus on resolving issues quickly.
