HomeKanban Training - Ariel Partners

I found this training to be immensely helpful and eye-opening. I look forward to bringing back thoughts and learning to one of our scrum teams back here at [our company].

Team-Level Kanban

1 Day

This training course provides a comprehensive understanding of the Kanban agile process.  In particular, it will explain what problems Kanban solves, how Kanban teams are organized and managed, and how the work is captured, managed, and tracked.  It will review how releases are planned and tracked and review the key metrics used to evaluate the progress of Kanban teams.

Scaling with Kanban: Flight Levels and Multi-Team Flow

1 Day

“I didn’t know you could do that with Kanban!” This training course describes how Kanban can be applied at multiple levels within an organization, such as to coordinate the efforts of multiple Scrum development teams.  We will explore how Kanban boards can be used in diverse industries and at multiple levels of the organization.  We will explore several interesting examples, including Kanban boards for managing non-IT knowledge work, facilitating multi-team coordination at scale, and even planning and communicating corporate strategy.  The course introduces the concept of Flight Levels: team (level one), value-stream (level two), and strategy/portfolio (level three).  In the course we will conduct workshops to interactively explore how using a higher-level Kanban board, together with Cap Tokens, can be used to manage dependencies across Scrum teams in a simple and effective way, yielding dramatically improved overall throughput.  We will explore the ramifications of some alternative board designs, which will help participants learn to construct their own Kanban boards and improve the design of existing boards.

Certified Team Kanban Practitioner

1 Day

Getting Started with Visualization and Limiting Work-in-progress is a highly interactive one-day entry-level course accredited by the Lean-Kanban University (LKU) that focuses on implementing Kanban at the Team Level. Participants will gain sufficient knowledge about the Kanban Method and related topics to get started by introducing Kanban in the existing process and taking that first step to making it successful.

Kanban System Design (KSD)

2 Days

Learn the alternative path to agility with certified kanban classes. Use Kanban to manage any process: human resources, sales, underwriting, corporate strategy, IT operations, and software development. Understand how Kanban systems can be used to visualize and manage delivery flow and drive continuous improvement.

Kanban Systems Improvement (KSI)

2 Days

Kanban Systems Management is a 2-day advanced level course that will help participants build on their existing knowledge of Kanban Method and will help them take their current Kanban implementation to the next level.  Building on KMPI, the KMPII course focuses on broadening beyond a single-team focus to upstream/customer Kanban and deepening to scale to the value-stream and strategy level.   We take a deeper dive into Kanban adoption challenges, dependencies, and identifying and removing delays.  Attendees of both KMPI and KMPII receive a Kanban Management Professional certification.
