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.
There are no set prerequisites to attend the course. However, reading “Kanban” by David J Anderson or “Kanban from the Inside” by Mike Burrows before joining the class is recommended.
