Psychology of Change
Understanding the psychology of change will help you successfully introduce the Kanban Method, and help build a culture of continuous improvement in your organization.

Advanced Topics
This course goes beyond material covered in the “Kanban” book.  It includes topics such as applying cost of delay, class of service, kanban board design, CFD charts, and risk management.

Answers to the hard questions
How do you use metrics in Kanban? How can you use Little’s Law? How do you handle defect tracking? Every class is customized to answer YOUR questions.  The small class size means you go back to your workplace with answers you can apply.

Using Simulations
You will be introduced to the GetKanban game and the KanbanSim computer simulation. You will learn how to use these in the workplace to achieve greater success in less time.

“As the lead for Deloitte LEAN, a service offering dedicated to helping technology workers excel in their craft, I can speak first hand to the influence David’s class has had on how I have conducted numerous large scale organizational transformation initiatives” - Jeff Anderson, Deloitte LEAN, LKU Kanban Coaching Professional

The workshop will open with a round table of introductions and shared Kanban experience. Each participant will be asked for a list of questions they’d like answered over the 3 day session and from this a topic backlog will be built. David will augment this backlog with essential topics and foundational material. The agenda for the remaining time will then be set to insure the fullest of coverage and the maximum value for all participants. The focus will be on shared experience and discussion of the hard questions that clients and team members ask coaches during the introduction of Lean ideas through the use of a kanban pull system. The workshop will include the use of the Kanban Sim by Focused Objective and the option of playing the GetKanban game simulation during one evening. The objective is to understand the use of games and simulation as tools for training and planning in the workplace.

The intent of limiting the workshop to a maximum of 12 attendees (typical attendance is around 8 people) is to have an interactive collaborative session designed to facilitate knowledge sharing and learning. Attendees should come prepared to discuss their own experiences with Kanban and challenging situations they’ve faced with change initiatives at clients or employers

The goal of the Kanban Coacihng Professional Masterclass is to enable participants to go back into the field and successfully coach Agile/Lean transitions using the Kanban approach. Every workshop is different because of the unique experiences of each participant and their specific focus and desired outcomes.

“This Kanban masterclass has helped me to deeply understand the Kanban method, with a more organizational and management point of view. Advanced topics such as change and risk management, and other models have been covered, which makes it complementary to David’s Kanban training class.” - Laurent Morriseau, Morisseau Consulting, LKU Kanban Coaching Professional
