Practicing Kanban Using Azure Boards

This one day Practicing Kanban Using Azure Boards class will introduce Kanban and demonstrate how an agile team can configure and use Azure Boards to effectively practice Kanban, achieve flow, and begin improving throughput and predictability.

This course is appropriate for all members of a software development team, especially those who are actively involved with creating and refining a product backlog as well as planning and executing the work. This course will also provide value for individuals outside the development team (managers, Scrum Masters, coaches, and other stakeholders) who are interested in establishing and improving flow for their team.

What people say about our training

Got a lot more information than expected. Good presentation.
Bryan Lawrence
The class structure and instructor were great. Webucator was also very prompt in taking care of my course. I registered the day before the course and they over-nighted my kit to me and emailed me the course book. They really want to make sure students are prepared for the class and are always on hand to support students.

The Intro to XML Training class was a great fit for me. We were able to delve into areas that were more pertinent to my situation while still covering the entire lesson.
