How often have you heard the advice – “don’t work harder, work smarter”? Did that advice ever come with effective strategies on how?

Now it does!

The Art and Science of Creative Flow, explores just that! Taught by expert guides and practitioners.

By applying Flow, Lean and Agile principles through Kanban you will learn to "work smart" as you optimize the delivery of value and become true artisans of flow in work and life.

Kanban is fast becoming the modern way to manage an organization's delivery of customer value. In today's always-on environment, it offers a clear set of practices and metrics that provide just enough structure without getting in the way - keeping everyone aligned and value flowing at a sustainable pace.

In this four-day course, you will learn powerful and effective ways to use Kanban as a strategy to:

  • Facilitate high performance, creativity, and a sustainable pace in your context. 

  • Optimize individual and team effectiveness, efficiency, practicability, and sustainability.

  • Recognize and remove barriers that impede flow.

  • Tap into the joy of 'getting stuff done' while continuously learning and improving. 

An emphasis on practical application of concepts through hands-on exercises and simulations will leave you ready to apply your learnings immediately.

As a result of this program, you will be able to:

  1. Create a visual board and define shared expectations to manage your work

  2. Describe the value of work-in-progress (WIP) limits

  3. Capture and interpret key flow metrics and analytics to find improvement opportunities

  4. Explain the impact of flow on effective, efficient, and predictable value delivery

  5. Define, build, operate, and continuously improve a Kanban system

  6. Explain how tooling impacts your implementation

"April and Anjali are true experts and teachers of this content! They relate exercises directly to experiences that help the concepts become real world situations."

Christine B., SDLC Manager
