Kanban Systems Improvement

Target Audience

As this class is a “next step” in Kanban learning roadmap and uses concepts thought on previous class (like STATIK approach) this is required that all visitors had previously visited LKU class “Kanban system design” or KMP1.

Knowledge obtained from the 2 classes is enough to build the constantly improving system of value delivery based on the Kanban method in your organization. For this reason, participants receive Kanban Management Professional status from LeanKanban University.


The format of the training

The two-day training program is expanded by preliminary self-training and "homework". This allows the most efficient use of time in the training for discussions, individual and group exercises.

This training incorporates many concepts of "training from the back of the room", in which the participants say and do more than the instructor: short blocks of theory alternate with practice and exercises. Also, the program includes a full-scale simulation of the kanban system in a safe environment where all participants will be able to experience all aspects of the kanban system.
