A Full Week of Kanban Training!
This is a modular training program. Three classes will be offered:
- TKP: Team Kanban Practitioner (1 day, Monday)
- KMP I: Kanban System Design (2 days, Tuesday-Wednesday)
- KMP II: Kanban Management Professional (2 day, Thursday-Friday)
Who Should Attend
The focus varies somewhat by class. Please refer to the respective class pages for details. Generally, your classmates may include first and second line managers, project managers, product managers, experienced individual contributors and technical experts, scrum masters, business unit leaders, C-level executives, their improvement coaches and consultants.
Please refer to the respective class pages for detailed descriptions. Here is a very short summary:
- The Team Kanban Practitioner class is about getting your team's work organized with Team Kanban, giving the team relief from overburdening, and getting things done with quality and pride of workmanship
- The Kanban System Design class: having vs. not having gotten this level of training correlates strongly with successful, impactful vs. shallow Kanban implementations. Here you learn how to apply systems thinking to design and introduce unique Kanban systems in your unique work environments. The focus is not towards the team, but on better service delivery, customer satisfaction and business performance.
- The Kanban Management Professional class is about sustaining evolutionary improvements, deepening Kanban practices, and organizational feedback loops enabled with the Kanban cadences.
All classes are certified by Lean Kanban University. Participants receive standard LKU certificates of course completion. LKU awards the following credentials-professional designations:
- Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP): for successfully completing the TKP class (1 day)
- Kanban Management Professional: for successfully completing both KMP I and II classes (4 days)
You don't have to take both the KMP I and II classes during the same week. If you have taken KMP I before (also designated by LKU in the past as "Foundation" or "Foundation I"), then you only need KMP II to complete the KMP credential requirements. You can also take KMP I now and KMP II in the future. You can also take them from different Accredited Kanban Trainers (AKTs).
- Lean Kanban University's certified training curriculum and teaching methods were created through collaboration of leading Kanban experts and validated in hundreds of training classes around the world.
- You get pragmatic, actionable guidance you can implement in your organization next week - because it doesn't require permission, a large budget or getting others to change
- You get a trainer who is the first LKU accredited trainer in Ontario, a long-time user and coach of the method, someone who is respected in Kanban practitioner communities around the world, and knows the stuff.
- Private on-site and semi-private training classes are also available, upon request. Check out the list of all our current public training offerings.
