Kanban System Design

Registrations are closed

Training dates are 27, 29, 31 March and 3, 5, 7 April.

We invite you to the training course "Kanban system design" (also known as Kanban Management Professional 1 or KMP1). This class includes the necessary amount of information to understand how "work works". This class is intended to break some of the widespread beliefs about how the work process is organized and optimized. With the help of systems thinking tools students can see a bigger picture of the systems, they are working with, which is a starting point towards an ability to build a system that will be fit for its need. This class will create sufficient skills to start using Kanban in your organization. This course is the official training class of Kanban University, founded by David Anderson – author of the Kanban method. All participants will receive an official internationally recognized certificate of attendance from Kanban University.

This program is designed for professionals who are responsible for process optimization, business performance, and project management: managers, IT directors, heads of departments, middle managers, team leaders, project managers, technical managers, engineers, and anyone who is interested in the results of the work of the various groups of people. Also, this training will be useful to Scrum Masters, who want to help their teams to get to the next level.
