Certified Lean Kanban Foundation | Kanban Systems Design (KMP1 only)
This Kanban course is designed for any professional who is part of a product development or knowledge work environment and who is interested in discovering how Kanban can help improve working environments. Kanban works across multiple functions of an organisation, from senior members of staff looking to adopt Lean Management to members of delivery teams willing to improve their working practices.
Previous attendees to our classes have been in roles such as:
Senior Management Positions (CxO) | Programme and Project Managers | Product Managers, Product Owners and Business Analysts | Scrum Team Members | Scrum Masters, Team Leads and Change Agents | Product & Software Developers & Testers | Agile Coaches & Practitioners (Scrum, XP, DSDM, AgilePM, etc.) | Other roles such as HR and Finance professionals
This highly interactive 2 - day course follows the official Lean-Kanban University (LKU) Certified Kanban System Design syllabus. It provides in-depth training in Kanban practices and the principles that underpin the Kanban method, including a fully immersive Kanban simulation. The Kanban method is an evolutionary approach to change and change management by starting with what you already do; respecting current roles; responsibilities and job titles; encouraging acts of leadership at all levels, and agreeing to pursue incremental, evolutionary change that evolves business processes using a Kaizen approach that reduces the risks associated with complex change programmes.
