Also known as Kanban Cadences, this 2-day Foundations Level Kanban training class (KMP II) focuses on the rollout and daily operation of multiple kanban systems. You will consider what type of Kanban initiative is most appropriate for your organization and how to manage and evolve inter-dependent kanban systems over time without trauma. Learn how to improve agility with asymmetrical commitment and the seven key feedback loops and cadences. The class also covers handling metrics, and setting policies.
