NICF- Lean Kanban Foundation

Overview

Kanban Systems Design (KMP1) is a highly interactive two-day course accredited by the Lean Kanban University (LKU). It combines teaching, group discussions and a fully immersive simulation to illustrate how the Kanban Method helps individuals, teams, and organisations to manage and improve the delivery of products and services to their customers.

The Kanban Method provides pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance for successful evolutionary change. It starts with what you do now and pursues evolutionary change while respecting current roles, responsibilities and job titles, and encouraging leadership at all levels. This allows organisations to evolve business processes gradually, define and use relevant metrics to measure progress, and significantly reduce the risks associated with complex change programmes.

You will leave this course with knowledge of the Kanban principles and general practices, and skills that will enable you to apply Kanban with confidence in your organisation.
