SysThinkSheff 4: Learn about product development with getKanban
Tue 06 December 2011, 7.00pm - 9.00pm
Venue: The GIST Lab
Sign up: free ticket

This month, we’ll be learning about kanban systems in product development by playing the getKanban board game.

The session will be run by Ash Moran. Ash Moran is a software developer, Lean/Agile coach, and the owner of PatchSpace Ltd, where has been using kanban systems in software for several years. He has recently also run the game at the Limited WIP Society Manchester. You can see a photo of the game in action here:
