The purpose of this training is to acquire knowledge and practice of the workshops aspects of Kanban and Agile foundations.
Kanban Management Professional 1 (KMP1) is a highly interactive two-day course accredited by the Lean Kanban University (LKU). It combines teaching, group discussions and a fully immersive simulation to illustrate how the Kanban Method helps individuals, teams, and organisations to manage and improve the delivery of products and services to their customers.
The Kanban Method provides pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance for successful evolutionary change. It starts with what you do now and pursues evolutionary change while respecting current roles, responsibilities and job titles, and encouraging leadership at all levels. This allows organisations to evolve business processes gradually, define and use relevant metrics to measure progress, and significantly reduce the risks associated with complex change programmes.
You will leave this course with knowledge of the Kanban principles and general practices, and skills that will enable you to apply Kanban with confidence in your organisation.
What Will You Learn?
- Identify internal and external sources of dissatisfaction
- Analyse demand vs capability
- Model the knowledge discovery process
- Design kanban systems and their visualisations
- Identify and prioritise improvements
- Choose cadences for activities
- Identify classes of service

This two-day course teaches teams who are part of an Agile Release Train (ART) how to work in an Agile environment using Scrum, Kanban, and XP. The teams will learn how to become Agile Teams, build their backlog, and plan and execute iterations. Agile teams learn about their ART and their role in it, planning, executing, and improving with other teams.
This class prepares teams to run a Program Increment (PI), including all meetings at the Team and Program level with a specific focus on the upcoming PI planning. Attending the class prepares participants to take the exam and become a certified SAFe® Practitioner (SP).
After this course, you should be able to:
Apply SAFe to scale Lean and Agile development in your enterprise

Know all other teams on the train, their roles and the dependencies between the teams
Execute iterations, demo value, and improve your process
Are you struggling with implementing Agile in your organization? Is the change too prescriptive? Are your teams overburdened and less productive but still too resistant for a revolutionary change?
Choose the “Alternative Path to Agility” and implement an evolutionary and humane Change Management Method which doesn’t change your process but improves it.
The Kanban Method provides pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance for successful evolutionary change. It starts with what you do now and respects current roles, responsibilities and job titles. This allows organizations to evolve business processes gradually, define and use relevant metrics to measure progress, and significantly reduce the risk associated with complex change programs.
If your team is overwhelmed, Kanban can help you to get your work under control. Kanban is a new technique for dynamically managing your process and revealing bottlenecks.
This training provides the skills and knowledge you need to apply Kanban in your work and learn how to determine what to work on now, what to leave until later and what to take off the to-do list forever.
This 1-day course teaches the basics of the Kanban Method® and serves as the entry level and starting point to an alternative path to agility.
Attendees should become familiar with the Kanban Method. They should be able to design and implement a basic Kanban board. They should be able to understand work item types and the risks associated with specific work items. They should be familiar with a variety of different Team Kanban board designs and styles and know how to choose a design that is best suited for their context. They should be aware of the training roadmap and the value and benefits to be derived at each step on the “alternative path to agility.”
