Kanban is a scheduling system that was originally developed to improve manufacturing efficiency. It uses visual cues to enhance communicative efficiency and matches inventory with demand, in order to achieve high levels of quality and throughput.
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 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 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.
