We have adapted our course with plenty of interaction and practical content. The course will run from 09:00 to 17:00 UK time. There will also be regular breaks for tea and coffee and to stretch your legs.
The most obvious thing you will need is a good WiFi and Internet connection with a nice quiet environment for you to both hear and also interact with your fellow course attendees and trainer! Don't worry about the odd child/dog/cat/partner wondering past or interrupting occasionally, we'll just roll with it :-)
We recommend a laptop or desktop with good sound and microphone. Course participants have struggled on phones and tablets. We will be using Zoom for the video conference functionality with a waiting room and password configured to provide a reasonable level of security. If you can, we recommend installing the Zoom app on your device but the web version should work as a plan B.
This course has been accredited by David J Anderson (creator of the Kanban method) and Kanban University (KU). Each attendee will receive a certificate.
