Kanban is more than visualizations and cards. There is a method behind discovering how the work flows through a team. The Kanban Systems Design course aims to not only introduce the Kanban Method for managing workflow, but also to apply the STATIK (Systems Thinking Approach to Introducing Kanban) approach to integrating Kanban into your present services. Learn the required upkeep of a Kanban system to support more efficient and higher quality in delivery of those services. Understand demand versus capability within your services, and how to identify hindrances to efficient flow of the work.

The Kanban Systems Design course is a 2-day overview of the Kanban method. Evidence-based information will provide an approach to introducing the method into your organization. Learn the efficacy and effectiveness of Kanban through group exercises, discussion and highly interactive game play.

In Day 1, you’ll learn several key elements of the Kanban Method, including:

  • Systems Thinking
