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 we’ll show you how in Improving Kanban.
In the advanced Kanban 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 two-day training focuses solely on improving your system through the exchange of ideas with other Kanban practitioners. After these two days, you will uncover the potential stil hidden in your system, even if you are currently using Kanban successfully.

"Before the training you think you basically know the method to manage your teams work; you leave the training and start to understand how powerful Kanban is in identifying the right decisions for your whole business."
"COD = quite eye opening, brings everything together."
"Awesome learning experience!"
"Awesome! Very informative and confirming...helped me answer all my questions I came here with... Lots to think about and transfer."
“When will the work be finished?” and “How much work can we deliver in a given time-frame?” are two questions which you will be able to answer in the future with accurate predictability instead of just estimating an answer. We practice dealing with probability of occurrence and, with the help of Monte Carlo Simulations, how more than 90 percent probability can be realistically achieved. It sounds difficult, but you only need the four basic calculations and a pocket calculator for precise delivery times.
At you at the point where the WIP limit isn’t being maintained because all of a sudden everything has top priority? Classical prioritization often causes more problems than it solves. We examine an economically reasonable and resilient method for prioritization: Cost of Delay. It’s best to bring along the people who give their input for prioritization, such as your product owner, project leader or another Spice Girl (which you hopefully remember from Applying Kanban).
With the third theme, scaling, we focus on answering the following question: How do you best coordinate a Kanban system over different hierarchical and functional levels of a company, so that they are integrated and networked into a whole system? Merely duplicating the same (team) boards only serves to fill the pockets of consultants. Instead, we’ll look at real-world examples of to improve the value stream when considering the dependencies across the entire organization[j1] .
Learning With and From One Another
LEANability stands for practical experience, expert knowledge and, above all else, pragmatism. We focus on utilizing theory, where it is necessary, for the fundamental understanding of Kanban. Everything that you hear from us during a training session is material which we have used directly in our work with customers and, through customer feedback, is continuously refined. Through the training you should experience the same effect: Profit from the experience of other participants, receive feedback on your system, and learn about practices which are currently deployed in other companies. To round out the training, you receive guidance and input from Klaus, who is one of the longest-serving Kanban trainers worldwide. Klaus is a recipient of the Brickell Key Award, author and consultant with extensive and comprehensive experience with Kanban systems of different sizes and across a wide-variety of industries.
