The term Kanban means “billboard” in Japanese and is a popular technique that was originally developed by an Industrial Engineer at Toyota. The approach aids the improvement of working environments by using visual signals to convey important information more simply and effectively.
Every team member can see clearly how tasks are set out, and this leads to a better understanding of workflow and improves communication and collaboration. A key Kanban principle is the limitation of work in progress. This is used to remove time wasted by task switching and reduce the need for constant reprioritisation.
Kanban is associated with Lean and its concepts. For example, Kanban’s methodology aids the organisation and management of different professional services, whilst utilising the Continuous Flow Concept, which implements ongoing analysis and improvement efforts. Therefore, Kanban is suitable for those who want to adopt Lean Management.
Kanban training is broken down into three courses; a Foundation course, a Practitioner course, and a combined Foundation and Practitioner course.
This combined 2-day Certified Kanban Foundation and Practitioner training course covers the fundamental constituents of the Kanban philosophy - working towards efficient "just in time" delivery of software development. During this comprehensive 2-day course, candidates will learn how to apply Kanban ideology within an enterprise, which will help to positively deviate away from inefficient mass production and move towards only making what is required for a set specification.
This 1-day Certified Kanban Foundation training course covers the fundamental constituents of the Kanban methodology - working towards efficient "just in time" software delivery.

After the course has finished, candidates will be able to support their team, resolve interferences to workflow, and adapt Kanban processes and practices in accordance with changing requirements.
