Kanban provides an alternative path toward evolutionary change, starting with what you already have, as opposed to other change management approaches that prove difficult for the organization to adopt and migrate to. In this Kanban System Design (KSD) course, you go beyond the principles of Kanban to see how it helps individuals, teams, and organizations balance workloads, visualize work and improve the delivery of quality products.

Combined with our Kanban Management Professional (KMP-II) course, this course qualifies for the Kanban Management Professional (KMP) Certificate. Demonstrate to your peers that you have had top-quality Kanban training to launch and manage Kanban initiatives with a KMP Certificate.
