Each day includes four intensive 90-minute sessions. With proper breaks between the "quarters" as well as the lunch breaks, it takes about eight hours to complete each day's agenda. Here's the approximate schedule:
|Class session (Q1)
|Class session (Q2)
|Class session (Q3)
|Class session (Q4)
The schedule doesn't have to be 9 to 5. We adapt to local conditions and shift this eight-hour frame accordingly.
Here's the approximate day-to-day agenda of the days of KMP II training.
|Motivation for the Kanban method, proto-Kanban evolutionary forms
|Multi-service Kanban case study, commitments
