FLOW 101 WORKSHOP
Facilitated by Dominica DeGrandis, one of the top experts of kanban flow in the industry
Flow is the continuous smooth and fast delivery of business value, and is the first of the three foundational principles underpinning DevOps. This hands-on methods workshop is for Tasktop customers who are ready to expand their Agile, Digital, or DevOps implementation to include practices which optimize the flow of business value across the value stream.
This workshop is best suited for teams who are impacted by each other’s work. This gives organizations the opportunity to discuss dependencies and determine prioritization policies, workflow design and metrics used to measure business outcomes. Teams upstream and downstream from each other will make their work, their handoffs, and their pain points visible to each other. Attendees will participate in learning exercises that lay the foundation for experiencing quick wins from the following core objectives:
CORE LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Make work visible to see bottlenecks, issues and risks
Optimize for the end-to-end product value stream
Identify the impacts of dependencies across teams
Utilize flow metrics to continuously improve and measure business value
Map workflow to improve flow
TYPICAL 2-DAY WORKSHOP AGENDA

A discovery call to understand the customer’s organization, roles, needs and desired outcomes and to answer any questions should occur prior to scheduling the workshop.
Getting the most from the workshop
Often, organizations invite their leadership in at the end of day two to watch teams present their experiments for improving flow across their value stream(s).
Dominica’s book, Making Work Visible, is included in the cost of the workshop. A great companion to the workshop as many of the training exercises and learnings stem from the book. Books (one per attendee) will be shipped to the customer site prior to the scheduled workshop.
