Kanban in Action! Our two day training, Applying Kanban, takes a deeper look at the hard facts. This substantial foundational training prepares you to immediately deploy Kanban in your organization or to execute a review of your existing Kanban system. We talk about comprehensive visualization, the effects of push versus pull, how to establish a work flow and how Kanban works on different organizational levels of a company. All the exercises are based on real-world examples and are directly applicable for your daily work with Kanban.

Working “Hands-on” with Kanban
For us, it is important to gear the trainings towards practical experience. Theories are presented in a quick and understandable manner so you can immediately start trying them out on concrete problems—preferably your own! Regardless if you are in Product Development, Support, IT Operations, Software or Hardware Development: In this training, you will receive the answers to your specific questions and challenges.
During the training, you have the opportunity to develop a Kanban system within your desired context. In doing so, you incorporate proper visualization, work flow and, naturally, WIP limits. At the same time, you consider which level of your organization would be the best place to start implementing a Kanban system.
Who is the training for?
You want to know it works and you are coming by yourself? The training covers all the foundations of Lean Kanban and incorporates practical exercises. It’s important to us that you understand the mindset, as well as be able to asses where and how Kanban would fit in your environment. You will be able to utilize the tools you receive from us and target them towards your specific needs.
You have concrete plans and want to employ Kanban in your environment? If this is the case, it’s best if three of you come to the training! With three participants from your area, you become a initial Kanban Change Team and can work within the context of your requirements during the training. You will leave the training with a blueprint for your personal Kanban system.
You are already using Kanban? You started a Kanban system under your own initiative, and now you wonder if the approach was correct? Bring photos and documentation of your Kanban system and we’ll look at them together. During the training, you can review the theories of Kanban and use the exercises, as well as the eyes and ears of the other participants, to examine your implementation. You will leave the training with a (most likely long) “to-do” list for your Kanban system.
