Kanban Systems Design - KMP I

Many organisations face common issues like delays, disruption of plans from unplanned activities & emergencies, slowness to react, overburden of people, poor quality and unhappy customers. 

Sound familiar?

This highly interactive and engaging training let participants learn The Kanban Method, understanding its foundational principles and how to effectively put them into practice to address the above mentioned issues and more. 

Games and activities will provide hands-on experience and let participants understand that Kanban is not just “putting post-its on a board” and how it fits very different contexts like product development and service delivery. 

Attendants will learn how and why flow of work is slowed down or stopped and will learn how to deal with overburden, bottlenecks and queues to smooth and optimise the flow of value through their system
