This 2-day course provides you with a thorough introduction to David J. Anderson’s Kanban method. The Kanban method is specifically designed to avoid the emotional resistance that often goes with changing processes. Therefore, Kanban focuses on making incremental, iterative changes that evolve business processes into more efficient work streams while avoiding the risks associated with complex change programs.

This interactive training provides an introduction to Lean, Pull Systems, kanban and the application of the Kanban method to successfully improve your delivery. This course provides you with a practical introduction into this new and exciting approach to accelerate the flow of work in your projects and operations.

By attending this course, you will learn how to design a successful kanban system and initiate change with Kanban. You will learn to understand the concepts of flow, pull, and collaborative improvement. At the end of the course, you will be able to design a Kanban system and experience in practice how to use Kanban to improve capabilities of your organization, e.g. shorter and more predictable delivery times, better risk management, increased trust and continuous improvement.
