About

In the IT world, Kanban is used by the recently fashionable agile methods to improve the daily work of programmers teams, project managers, managers and also increasingly in the operational world.

We teach people to apply Kanban at the service-delivery level, not the team level, to understand and use Kanban systems, and to design Kanban systems for services within their organizations using the systems thinking approach. Students learn many Kanban system elements such as work item typesclasses of serviceworkflow activitiescommitment pointsreplenishmentdelivery planningexplicit policiesvisualization of riskcadencestransaction costscoordination costs, and so on. They learn what to observe in their unique business environments and how to incorporate their understanding into their Kanban system design. The GetKanban game within the context of this class allows them to actually learn these things by experiencing them. Much better than listening to a lecture!

During the training, Participants, using the Kanban board simulation game, will learn how the world’s largest players in the Lean world use Kanban to:

  • Information control in processes, tasks and projects,
  • Value flow visualization,
  • Minimizing losses associated with overproduction or storage,
  • Building trust through full transparency of tasks, progress, problems or challenges encountered,
  • Define roles and responsibilities throughout the organization.
  • Length: 1 day
  • Level: Foundation
  • Form: 25% lectures / 75% workshops
  • Enrolment: Training on demand for groups
  • Logistics: At the customer’s premises (on-site) or anywhere else (online)
