A better project manager with Kanban

Host: Jesper Boeg

When: 26. Feb 2015 at 16:30 - 18:30

Where: Trifork A/S, Margrethepladsen 4, 8000 Aarhus C


"Project Manager"? Isn't that something Agile consultants have spent the last 10+ years trying to get rid off? Well they are still here and some of them are actually sensible people that do a damn good job under challenging circumstances. No matter if you are an old time micro managing PM or have caught the Agile wave and transitioned into a Product owner or Scrum Master role Kanban can help you shine!

In this presentation we will focus on how Kanban can help you become a better PM and increase effectiveness, alignment and motivation with more predictable outcomes and increased customer value and satisfaction - even in situations where innovation is of the essence and Agile principles guide you to embrace change underway. Don't believe me? Well fortunately I have real data to prove the points.

Since Kanban is principle based you can even keep centralizing control, work delegation and the belief that heavy upfront specification is the best way to work. Chances are that in time you will get tired of it and find that there are more effective ways of administering teams and projects but initially Kanban does not make any judgements as to the optimal way of work in your situation. Come along and be inspired, provoked and maybe even enlightened.

Implementing Agile and Lean principles in the context of innovation and IT has been Jesper's work and passion for almost a decade. Having spent a number of years as a full time Agile and Lean coach and trainer, Jesper got tired of only telling others how to work. Therefore, he now divides his time between his real job as Process Development Lead at the Digital Agency Creuna, working with real teams and clients to test the boundaries of effective value delivery while still doing a bit of Agile and Lean coaching and training on the side.

Jesper is a Kanban Coaching Professional and Accredited Kanban Trainer from LKU and sits on the management board of that same organization. He is the author of the two minibooks "Real Life Scrum" and "Priming Kanban", which can both be downloaded for free
