Kanban Systems Improvement (KMP II)

The basics of Kanban have taken hold and are already being used in daily operations. However, you have a feeling that you could get more out of it. This is most certainly the case, and agile42 will show you how in Kanban Systems Improvement.

The Kanban Development Path

Kanban Systems Improvement Overview

In the Kanban Systems Improvement training, we work on scaling, prioritizing and forecasting—those themes which need a system that has been in place for a while and has somewhat matured. This training focuses solely on improving your system through the exchange of ideas with other Kanban practitioners. After attending this training, you will uncover the potential still hidden in your system, even if you are currently using Kanban successfully.
