KANBAN SYSTEM DESIGN (KMP I)
GOAL OF THIS TRAINING
Learn the fundamentals of the Kanban Method. Experience Kanban with a simulation game and hands-on exercises to design a Kanban board. Learn to Design a Kanban system, or improve an existing system, for optimal flow and faster delivery.
Kanban is a method of organizing and managing professional services work. It uses Lean concepts such as limiting work in progress to improve results.
A Kanban system is means of limiting work-in-progress and signaling when capacity is available to start new work. This is known as a “pull system.”
For intangible goods — invisible work performed by knowledge workers — it is necessary to visualize a kanban system using a kanban board. The board can visualize the work, its workflow, the kanban system, plus various business and delivery risks. Kanban facilitates complex handling of the work and allows real control of the workload.
