Kanban System Improvements (KMP2)

Kanban is a set of values, practices and principles that bring the benefits of Lean theory to organisations.

Benefits include;

  • increasing the flow of value
  • visualising and establishing an optimum workload for the team's capacity
  • reducing waste
  • creating better organisational alignment
  • building a culture of engaged workers

The Kanban method focuses on making incremental, iterative changes that evolve business processes into more efficient and manageable work streams while avoiding the risks associated with complex change programmes.

Audience

This interactive workshop, accredited by the Kanban University, teaches advanced principles of the Kanban Method.

It is for people who have:

  • Already mastered the Kanban basics through applying Kanban in their organisation, and want to take their implementations to the next level.
  • The desire to keep momentum going beyond the initial improvements realised from the Kanban system introduction

What do I need to take part in this course?

The most obvious thing you will need is a good WiFi and Internet connection with a nice quiet environment for you to both hear and also interact with your fellow course attendees and trainer! Don't worry about the odd child/dog/cat/partner wondering past or interrupting occasionally, we'll just roll with it :-)

We recommend a laptop or desktop with good sound and microphone. Course participants have struggled on phones and tablets. We will be using Zoom for the video conference functionality with a waiting room and password configured to provide a reasonable level of security. If you can, we recommend installing the Zoom app on your device but the web version should work as a plan B.
