Kanban System Design (KSD)

Booking option:

In this course you will learn the basics of Kanban systems and learn how to set up Kanban systems yourself.  You have already set up your first Kanban Board and want to go one step further? In this course you will expand your methodical knowledge about Kanban and learn the structured design of a Kanban system.
This is an official KMP1 course of the Lean Kanban University, held by an accredited Kanban Trainer. Originally developed as a method for production control, Kanban is now also indispensable in agile project management for control for better utilization, creation of higher transparency, as well as for flow optimization. Kanban makes sense where the added value in the field of knowledge (e.g. software development) depends on "invisible" work and this is only reflected in the minds of the employees, because the transfer of the head work to the elegant visualization makes a control of the work packages possible in the first place.
