Next week is going to be a great week, with lots of interesting stuff happening. Monday and Tuesday David J. Anderson will teach his first official Kanban Training Class in Norway. My role? I’m organizing the event and will do my best to make sure that it will be a good one.
The course is fully booked, with a good mix of consultants and employees from Norwegian companies. There are representatives from a major financial institution, insurance, telecom, media, governmentm, a software house and of course some consultants.
Fishbowl Session at the Oslo Lean Meetup
This is going to be really interesting. On Monday night David will participate in a Kanban Fishbowl session at the Scotsman pub in the centre of Oslo. The event is hosted by the Oslo Lean Meetup group and the 80 seats were taken within 1 1/2 hour of announcing it! Currently there are around 40 in waiting list for this event, so look like it definitely will be packed. IIt represents an opportunity for the Norwegian community to discuss Kanban with David and it will be interesting to see how the crowd responds.
Then on Wednesday, Miles hosts a free half day seminar where David will present a scaled down version of his SHIFT-ALT-CONTROL seminar (usually a full day event). Some of the topics that will be covered are:
- How to make promises you can keep
- How to better manage risk
- How to shift the culture in your organization
It looks like this will be “sell-out” too, with people from lots of different companies and people in lots of different roles amongst the attendees. I hope and believe that they will find the seminar useful, learn something new and perhaps take something with them back to their daily job. I am at least looking forward to doing something quite different than my “usual” job.
