We have adapted our course to now include 2 trainers with plenty of interaction and practical content. The course will run from 9:30 to 5:30. There will also be regular breaks for tea and coffee and to stretch your legs.
What do I need to take part in this course?
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 us lovely trainers! 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.
This course has been accredited by David J Anderson (creator of the Kanban method) and Kanban University (KU). Each attendee will receive a certificate.
Those attendees taking a KU-accredited course will be eligible to become members of the Kanban University. To read about the benefits and learn more, visit the KU website.
Attendees who complete both KMP1 & KMP2 classes are eligible for the Kanban Management Professional designation. Students who do not complete the official KMP1 training through the KU, will not receive this. Please ask if you are not sure.
An electronic version of course slides, materials and workshop output will also be provided after the course closes.
