The Kanban Management Professional course builds on the foundation of the Kanban System Design course and allows participants to take their usage of Kanban to the next level. This course will enable participants to tune Kanban rollout initiatives, enable richer feedback loops, and create Upstream and Customer Kanban implementations. All of which allows for Kanban not just at the team level, but enable the interconnected services that help support your business and get closer to being fit for purpose to meet your customer’s expectations.


What Participants will learn

This course is highly interactive – with games and simulations allowing students to learn through doing as well as drawing upon the experiences of the trainer. Case studies are used to help reinforce learning from previous Kanban implementations. Included in this is:

  • Dealing with resistance to WiP limits

  • Rollout phases for a Kanban initiative
  • Developing a service orientation
  • Managing evolutionary change
  • Upstream Kanban
  • Scaling Kanban across an organisation
