CKT StickerKanban is a set of values, practices and principles that focus on bringing the benefits of Lean theory to organisations. Once you’ve successfully started rolling out Kanban at a team level it’s time to think about how Lean principles apply to the entire organisation.

This interactive certified two-day workshop teaches you the advanced principles of the Kanban Method, and is designed for people who have:

  • Already Mastered the Kanban basics by applying Kanban in their organisation, and now want to take their implementation to the next level
  • The desire to keep momentum going beyond the initial improvements gained from the introduction of the Kanban system.

This course focuses on deeper Kanban practices that sustain evolutionary improvements and organisational feedback loops enabled by the Kanban cadences. To be able to participate in the activities included delegates would need to have completed Helen’s Certified Lean Kanban Foundations course or any equivalent KMP1 course.
