Kanban Management Professional (KMP II)

Course Overview

In the course, you will be involved in regular hands-on exercises and discussions that will focus on the rollout and daily operation of a Kanban system.  You will consider what type of Kanban initiative is most appropriate for your organisation and how to manage and evolve it over time without trauma.

The course follows the official LKU Certified Lean Kanban syllabus. During the two days you will have ample opportunities to discuss and experience the following topics:

  • Building an Information Flow: the 7 Cadences
  • Dealing with resistance to WIP limits
