This course will teach the tools and techniques to successfully build and maintain end-to-end Kanban systems with a special focus on creating and improving the upstream design and innovation function. Attendees will get hands-on practice developing an upstream Kanban board, gain experience running a STATIK workshop for upstream development, be introduced to the Kanban Maturity Model, take part in exercises in turbulent flow and failure demand, and apply learning through real-world case studies.
This class is the equivalent of the Kanban System Improvements class (KSI) class but focuses on upstream Kanban systems, rather than downstream delivery.
This workshop is hands-on, using various exercises alongside instructor-led discussions and presentations.
We have adapted our course with plenty of interaction and practical content. The course will run from 10:00 to 16:00. There will also be regular breaks for tea and coffee and to stretch your legs.
The most obvious thing you will need is a good WiFi and Internet connection with a nice quiet environment for you to both hear and also interact with your fellow course attendees and trainer! Don't worry about the odd child/dog/cat/partner wondering past or interrupting occasionally, we'll just roll with it :-)
We recommend a laptop or desktop with good sound and microphone. Course participants have struggled on phones and tablets. We will be using Zoom for the video conference functionality with a waiting room and password configured to provide a reasonable level of security. If you can, we recommend installing the Zoom app on your device but the web version should work as a plan B.
