Better Value

To become a Kanban Management Professional, we offer a combined 4-day course that covers both KMP1 & KMP2 syllabus. 

 

 

Are you struggling with implementing Agile in your organization? Are your teams overburdened and less productive but still too resistant for a revolutionary change?

Choose the “Alternative Path to Agility” and implement an evolutionary and humane Change Management Method which doesn’t change your process but improves it.

The Kanban Method provides pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance for successful evolutionary change. It starts with what you do now and respects current roles, responsibilities and job titles. This allows organizations to evolve business processes gradually, define and use relevant metrics to measure progress, and significantly reduce the risk associated with complex change programs.

This 4-day hands-on course follows the official Lean Kanban University (LKU) training materials produced by David J Anderson, Mike Burrows and other leading Lean Kanban experts.

In the course, you will be involved in regular hands-on exercises and discussions that will focus on the daily operation of a Kanban system and how to extend the kanban system boundary and include multiple value streams.

You will consider what type of Kanban initiative is most appropriate for your organisation and how to manage and evolve it over time.

You will learn how to improve agility with asymmetrical commitment and cadences.
