Event Details


In today’s knowledge-based economy, how many of you would like to be to be told what to do or asked what to do?

How many of you would like to be to able to think on their feet or looking around for guidance?

Contemporaneous Kanban’s focus is entirely on Lead Time where being quick to market is important, but many companies just need more things to be done in less time (rather than faster) and cheaper, which is where improving Throughput comes in.


This is the business proposition of this class: Thinking on your feet. Fast and crisp decision making to generate Throughput.


The Mastering Throughput Class is unique and focusses on the Business imperatives of generating more cash by increasing capacity at no cost simply by thinking differently about where you should focus your improvement efforts – at the constraint of your value stream!

This class covers topics not addressed in Agile such as Management by exception, explicit risk management and much more. It is based on managing Throughput in accordance with Dr Eli Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints and Throughput Accounting: two topics that are somewhat omitted in modern age Kanban and DEVOPS.

Who Should Attend

Are you a knowledge worker and wondering how to get immediate economic benefits in your working environment?

Have you been using the Kanban method and plateaued? There is much more to Kanban than Lead Time!

Well this course will introduce you to new Kanban boards and knowledge that will allow you to make more money by generating more Throughput without spending a dime on increasing capacity.
