About Kanban Training

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.

The Benefits

Undertaking Kanban courses can significantly elevate an individual’s workplace productivity, due to utilising a more fluid and flexible way of operating. Additional benefits include:

  • Enhanced operational performance

  • Develop your existing working practices by utilising visual cues

  • Reduces your “work in progress” load by balancing demands 


The benefits of Kanban training for businesses include:

  • Elevate your productivity output by ensuring that only required and essential products are focused upon and manufactured using the “just in time” technique

  • Streamline production operations and respond to customer demands quickly

  • Reduced cost of manufacturing and enhanced quality assurance

  • Utilising the Kanban model ensures that your production line will continuously improve

  • Kanban is easily applicable and tailorable to a variety of production sectors - from software to car manufacturing
