The time has now come to connect with Project Managers and CPAs all over North America through the PMI REP channel offered by the Project Management Institute with a course suited to their specific needs.

Who Should Attend

This responsibility is through acquiring knowledge from the Kanban method. And once this is done, you will not need a budget or a permission to shine anew in your organisation.

What You Will Learn

Daniel Doiron Certified Kanban Coach, CPA-CMA, MBA, PMP, CSP

Daniel Doiron is a Certified Kanban Coach and has been involved in IT since 1981 in a wide range of roles and responsibilities, primarily in client-facing consulting projects covering the government, banking, insurance, and telecom industries to name a few. 

Daniel’s involvement with Agile started with Scrum in 2005 and more recently with Kanban and Management 3.0. Daniel was selected to speak at the Scrum Alliance Global Gathering in Shanghai and at the Lean Kanban North America Conference in Miami. He is also a frequent speaker on Kanban topics for the local (Montreal) chapters of both the PMI and Agile Alliance.

Recently, Daniel received an acknowledgment for his contribution in the ‘Essential Kanban Condensed’ guide published by David Anderson and Andy Carmichael and in "Practical Kanban' from Klaus Leopold - now a best seller on Amazon! Daniel has chosen to work with managers who have been left behind by the Agile movement since the top 5 Agile methods (Scrum, XP, FDD, Crystal, Dynamics) offer more than 50 roles to the various actors: yet not a single one for management! This is where he comes in, providing more effective and efficient management skills and tools.

Trained in the traditional CPA-CMA, MBA and PMI archetypes, Daniel seamlessly bridges the various gaps to the new Agile and Lean paradigms of thinking and acting. He loves systems, enjoys measuring improvement while embracing teamwork that actually works!

Daniel holds a B.Comm (MIS), an MBA, a PMP and is also a CPA-CMA from the Province of Quebec. For Agile certifications, Daniel holds a CSP and is a Certified Kanban Coach
