Kanban Training Course

Kanban is Japanese for “visual signal” or “card.”. Kanban first came to prominence in the late 1940s at Toyota. Line-workers at Toyota used a kanban (i.e., an actual card) to signal steps in their manufacturing process. Over the years Kanban has been adopted by teams and individuals in organisations to help visualize workflow, stimulate communication and improve efficiency in internal processes.

This one day course draws on lessons from the Toyota Production System (TPS) and the work of popular business thought leaders and pioneers like Deming, Reinertsen and Anderson combined with our unique experience and practical application of Kanban to give you the knowledge and skills to promote efficiency in your organisation through Kanban.

The course is delivered in a unique way, focussed around the “Kanban Pizza Game” to encourage participation and promote learning.
