Kanban - Alternative Path to Agility

Toronto, June 18-22, 2018

Monday: TKP

Get your team's work organized with Team Kanban, relieve teams of overburdening, get work done with quality and pride of craftsmanship.

Tue-Wed: KMP I

Apply systems thinking to design, introduce and operate Kanban systems.  Improve delivery of services, products, projects, customer satisfaction and business performance.

Thu-Fri: KMP II

Sustain evolutionary improvements, implement organizational feedback loops with Kanban cadences, use the full Kanban method, get to pull at the enterprise scale.

Which Class Should I Take?

Team leader, Scrum master, team member: 1-day Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP). Improve team transparency, balance and collaboration.

Managers with responsibility for delivery of products and services to customers: Team-level agenda (Team and DYI Kanban) is rarely the answer to your business' challenges. Therefore, start with the 2-day Kanban System Design (KMP I) class. Apply Kanban to improve customer satisfaction and business agility. Feel free to bring along key team leads and senior individuals who can help you implement Kanban's service-orientation agenda.

Managers with experience applying Kanban who want to apply it throughout their company or business unit and achieve more with Kanban: 2-day Kanban Management Professional (KMP II) class.

Improvement consultants and coaches: KMP I and II, during the same week or with a gap. Your clients want business results, not team boards. Give better advice, avoid bad advice.

Professional development: Take KMP I. Increase your skill set in managing the flow of work. Consider taking KMP II after you've had an opportunity to practice what you learned in KMP I.

Looking for Kanban certification: Lean Kanban University (LKU) awards TKP credential for completing the 1-day TKP class, KMP credential for completing both KMP I and II classes (4 days of training). But, seriously, no employer or recruiter uses these acronyms as filters.

Venue and Timing

The venue will be downtown, near Union Station. We've used Le Germain Maple Leaf Square and Novotel Toronto Centre in the past.

Class time: 9:00am to 5:00pm. You're welcome to arrive as early as 8. We'll be serving lunch from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.
