TKP: Team Kanban Practitioner Class

The “Team Kanban Practitioner” class is a great place to start with Kanban. This is an introductory, yet intense and interactive 1-day Kanban class. It will enable you to start using and getting benefits of Kanban in your team, also if your team already uses Scrum.

This is not a Kanban or Scrum class but an agnostic agile Scrum-friendly Kanban training from the official German translator of the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams.
