The Japanese word ‘kanban’, means ‘visual board’ or ‘sign’. Kanban was developed after World War II by Taiichi Ohno and applied at Toyota as a system for just-in-time manufacturing. In the years after 2000, Kanban methodology was no longer just applied to manufacturing, but also to software development, product and service development, IT operation, human resources, marketing, sales, and anywhere else where processes can be improved.
Kanban has six core practices:
• Visualize the flow of work
• Limit work-in-progress (WIP)
• Manage the flow
• Make process policies explicit
• Implement feedback loops
• Improve collaboratively, evolve experimentally
This certification focuses on understanding the principles of Kanban and applying them in practice with the help of Kanban tools.
Includes quizzes, student materials and an official trial exam – No additional resources are required – everything that you need to understand the concepts and principles is included. The official exam is also provided in the price of this course.
