About this Event

Kanban System Design (KMP1)

Whether you already do some Kanban or not, join this class to do it even better. You will learn the Kanban Method in more details and the concepts of flow, pull, and collaborative improvement. The class includes a Kanban business simulation as well as interactive exercises to accelerate ​​learning.

This class is the first step toward Kanban Management Professional (KMP) credentials. It is accredited by Lean Kanban University, and is designed for managers, developers, and anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of the Kanban Method. The class includes the use of a Kanban simulation as well as exercises to design an actual Kanban system. You can apply everything the next day at your work for better outcome.

Also see follow on course Kanban Management Professional ii (KMP ii), and the Team Practitioner courses, Starting with Kanban.

Course Content & Objectives

Participants will learn how to design a Kanban system and initiate change with Kanban. They will learn the basic concepts of flow, pull, and collaborative improvement. At the end of the training, participants will understand:

  • How to identify and address bottlenecks
  • How to work with shifting priorities
  • How to deal with interrupt work and multi-tasking
  • How to deal with important but not time-critical work
  • How to avoid having work pile up in one place (or time) while there is a lack of work in another place
  • How to create flow in the work, the information to perform the work, and the teams that do the work

The content of this course covers the following topics, presented in the form of interactive exercises organized in small groups, plus games, classroom teaching and discussion.

  • Controlling Work in Progress (from push to pull)
  • Visualizing work (designing the card wall)
  • Measuring and managing flow (control charts, flow diagrams)
  • Making policies explicit (classes of service)
  • Managing change and collaborative improvement

Intended as a primer, this course is perfect for those pursuing their Kanban Management Professional (KMP) accreditation and ensures preparedness for Kanban Systems Design (KMP I) and Kanban Systems Management (KMP II).
