It may be recognizable to you. There is just a too much work which makes it (too) busy. Work comes in from all sides and various stakeholders trying to influence the right prioritization. When one wave of crowds has passed, the next one arrives. There is hardly any time for proper documentation and there is too little time for maintenance and improvement of our own processes and technology. It is difficult to keep up with developments and the duration of projects is far too long.
Kanban is a method based on LEAN principles to provide insight into the work stock and work in progress and to limit it by creating a pull system. A pull system ensures that a customer only receives all upstream activities of a product or service when they need it. A pull system provides a balance between demand and capacity, whereby the Kanban system protects the (production) capacity.
Kanban helps to get a grip on work stock and work pressure. It helps to match the capacity of your teams and organization to the demand and to start a continuous and sustainable process of improvement. Your organization changes step by step to an organization that performs better.
What will you learn?
This training teaches you what Kanban is and shows that, through the application of Kanban, there is more grip and control, the workload is reduced, and a process of continuous improvement is automatically set in motion.
What are you going to do?
A picture is worth a thousand words. The Kanban training builds on this principle. Not just listening to theory, but above all experiencing the principles and the effect of Kanban yourself.
After an introduction about Kanban and the accompanying principles, you will experience the principles and impact through a simulation game. The training shows the effect of limiting WIP (Work in progress), the use of multidisciplinary teams and the effect of investing in implementing improvements. During the game you will encounter recognizable situations where it quickly becomes clear what the effect of Kanban can be.
Who is this training suitable for?
The training is suitable for anyone involved in projects that can benefit from the Kanban approach.
