Kanban Management Professional 1 (KMP I)
This highly interactive training, also known as Kanban System Design, is a detailed, hands-on and practical implementation of Kanban systems.
Public KMP I Training
Many organisations face common issues like delays, disruption of plans from unplanned activities & emergencies, slowness to react, overburden of people, poor quality plus, unhappy teams & customers.
This training dives deep into The Kanban Method, exposing its foundational principles and how to effectively put them into practice to address the above mentioned issues and more. Simulations and activities will provide hands-on experience and let participants understand that Kanban is not just “putting post-its on a wall”, but is a powerful method which can fit very different contexts like product development and service delivery.
Participants will learn how and why the flow of work is slowed down, or stopped, and will learn how to deal with overburden, bottlenecks and queues to ensure a smooth and optimised flow of value through their system. We will look at how and why Kanban is a flexible approach to manage change, and how to design and setup Kanban systems.
This course is specifically designed to provide you with actionable and practical knowledge you can use the next day. Several Kanban systems will be developed throughout the 2-day workshop, solving the real everyday challenges faced by the participants.
The key topics covered in this course include:
What is Kanban, the background, the principles and the practices
How to visualise work, identifying dysfunctions and issues
Balancing demand v capacity
