What Is KanConf?

For those of you who might not be familiar, KanConf is a series of virtual mini-conferences that provides an opportunity to gain knowledge and learn from the experience of Lean/Agile and Kanban experts.

Our vision is to host a series of virtual KanConf events throughout the year, each building on top of the last, giving you a sneak peek inside the brilliant minds of change-makers. But worry not, you don't have to have attended previous ones to reap the benefits of the next.

What Motivates Us?

Our company's vision is to help people do meaningful work and by that, accelerate innovation. On our journey, we firmly believe that creating a community where knowledge and experience are openly shared will help us all learn from one another and move faster toward progress.

That's why at Kanbanize, success means a few things: strong relationships with our partners, aim to provide nothing short of top-notch experience for our clients, and commitment to delivering unbiased industry insights to our followers. The KanConf series of virtual events is a means to express our deep beliefs, that at the heart of all success stories, lies continuous improvement through learning and a constant desire for knowledge.

Who Will Join KanConf #2?

At Kanbanize, we'd like to provide our audience with practical knowledge so they can accelerate their Lean/Agile journey. One of the ways to do this is by giving them access to the minds of internationally recognized change-makers in Lean/Agile and Kanban.

That's why we're happy to present to you the following panelists:
