What is Kanban?

Kanban is a method of organizing and managing professional services work. It uses Lean concepts such as limiting work in progress to improve results. A Kanban system is a means of limiting work-in-progress and signalling when capacity is available to start new work. This is known as a “pull system.” For intangible goods — invisible work performed by knowledge workers — it is necessary to visualize a kanban system using a kanban board. The board can visualize the work, its workflow, the kanban system, plus various business and delivery risks. Kanban facilitates complex handling of the work and allows real control of the workload. Lean Kanban University classes teach the steps to guide you through the Kanban Method and model your work using Kanban.


No prerequisites. Attendees are encouraged to read "Kanban" by David J Anderson or "Kanban from the Inside" by Mike Burrows, prior to the course.
