Event Description

The Wordpress User Group of the western suburbs is having a meeting that includes a presentation on KANBAN.  KANBAN is a set of practices that pushes information out of a system to staff that can react quickly to a changing situation.  Other practices make this an effective method of keeping things on track that was popularized by the hyper-efficient Toyota Production System.
