Kanban System Design

Kanban System Design


Kanban System Design is a 16 hour course providing knowledge and skills necessary to design a Kanban system or improve an existing one. The training covers all the principles and practices of the Kanban method and introduces the basic concepts of flow, pull, and collaborative improvement.

Students participate in the Meirik Kanban Simulation, where they discover how each of discussed elements of Kanban works in practice when the team is exposed to real-life situations.

Equipped with that experience, students discover the STATIK (Systems Thinking Approach to Introducing Kanban) technique that helps them understand their current work system and design a Kanban system prepared for evolutionary improvements in the future.

What do our students say about our training?

Great mixture of interactivity and passive learning, even so it was remote it didn't feel as tiring as Zoom meetings normally are
