Step up your Kanban game
In the upcoming weeks, Accredited Kanban Trainers from agile42 will facilitate certified Kanban training in locations all around the world
With the growth of knowledge work, such as professional services, creative industries and the design of physical and software products, there is a growing interest in managing work using the Kanban method. The focus of Kanban is the delivery of services by an organization - one or more people collaborating to produce (usually intangible) work products. Even where there is a physical product from services, value resides less in the physical item itself, and more in its informational content (the software, in the most general sense).
The method is based on the concept of a kanban system - a delivery flow system that controls the amount of work in progress using visual signals. The challenge is moving from a so-called "Proto-Kanban", where teams just put work items on a board, towards a true Kanban organization.
A number of agile42 coaches are Accredited Kanban Trainers (AKTs) from the Lean Kanban University and will deliver training classes in the upcoming weeks that put the participants on the path to be certified as Kanban Management Professionals (KMP). The KMP I class is the first step toward the credential showing you have had top quality Kanban training in order to launch and manage Kanban initiatives.
In this round of classes we meet our future KMPs in new locations, including our first ever certified Kanban training in Rome and in Toronto:
- Applying Kanban (Foundation) in Cape Town, South Africa on April 16-17
- Kanban System Design in Berlin, Germany on April 18-19
- Kanban System Design in Toronto, Canada on May 7-8
- Kanban System Design in Bologna, Italy on May 24-25
- Applying Kanban (Foundation) in Johannesburg, South Africa on June 11-12
- Kanban System Design in Rome, Italy on June 25-26
and more dates available soon. Students from KMP I classes can proceed to the KMP II class that delivers the KMP certification. At the moment we have one class scheduled, with more to be organized later in the year:
