Kanban Systems Improvement (Kanban University)

The Kanban Systems Improvement (KMP II) course concentrates on the complex demands of a multi-teamed organization and explores how to maintain momentum beyond initial improvements realized from a successful Kanban implementation.

You will learn how to extend your previous knowledge established during the Kanban System Design course. You will explore the rollout and daily operation of a Kanban system. You will consider what type of Kanban initiative is most appropriate for your organization and how to effectively manage and evolve it over time. Learn how to improve agility with asymmetrical commitment and regular cadences for meetings and feedback. The class also covers metrics and effective policies.

The attendee must, at minimum, take day 2 of the Kanban System Design (KMP 1) course so that they get experience with STATIK exercises.
