Participants leave excited and motivated to try something new.

Ready to get started, or do you have a few questions?

Personal Kanban looks easy, can't I just read the book?
The basics are easy, anyone can get started on their own. My experience is most people end up designing a system that is far from optimal. Visualizing work is a learned skill that takes time. Plus, you benefit in the course from sharing ideas, seeing many different designs and having access to a highly experienced practitioner.

What is different about your course compared to other Agile/Kanban trainings? 
Despite its growing popularity, there are only a handful of people offering Personal Kanban courses. Participants appreciate how practical and hands-on the course is, with a ready-made system to use immediately outside the course. In the course, the concepts become real and tangible.

How can I justify training for something personal to my employer? 
We all have workloads to manage. You can't be an effective team member unless you can be agile yourself. Happy, motivated workers produce better results. Managers have demands coming at them from above and below. Finally, everything taught in this course can be applied to small teams as well.
