This workshop is aimed at anyone who is looking to improve their team's ability to collaborate and share real-time progress


What you will take away from this workshop:


  • An understanding of the key principles behind Kanban; 
  • How you can set up a basic Backlog / Doing / Done board;

This session is open to any charity sector employees and volunteers across the UK. Where spaces are limited priority will be given to grant holders of The William Grant Foundation, The Robertson Trust, Inspiring Scotland, The National Lottery Community Fund and The RS MacDonald Charitable Trust.
