Why you need the AGILEST® Core Kanban Certification
When team-level requirements are stable, Scrum is effective. Yet, in dynamic scenarios demanding synchronization with various systems, Kanban emerges an effective choice.
While both Scrum and Kanban have their unique features, mastering Kanban is necessary for committed agile enthusiasts. Its adaptability ensures it molds to the exact needs of the product development process.
- Understand how Kanban works.
- Be job ready with critical real-world skills.
- Get recognition and authority from the AGILEST® Certification.
Kanban is a dynamic method designed to amplify task visibility within any system, addressing inefficiencies commonly arising from obscured workflows. Through visualization and systematized processes, Kanban streamlines tasks, reduces bottlenecks, and fosters consistent actions, ensuring efficient project progression.
The Certified Core Kanban program empowers students to facilitate a consistent workflow in systems, ensuring sustainable product value. It delves into the tenets necessary for fostering value flow, emphasizing on:
- Delivering transparent outcomes
- Eradicating flow bottlenecks
- Championing continuous improvement (Kaizen)
- Ensuring visibility and alignment
Key Course Highlights
The Kanban perspective accentuates systematic product development by:
- Establishing consistent policies
- Rooting out inefficiencies
- Adopting Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach
- Prioritizing for optimum economic returns
Introduction to Kanban
Understand Kanban's emphasis on task visibility and the pitfalls of unseen workflow steps. Recognize how lack of visualization can lead to increased task switching and longer delivery times.
Creating the Kanban
Dive into the primary steps of Kanban development, emphasizing the power of visualizing work. Grasp the importance of detailed policies for each workflow step, including role definitions, task objectives, and exit criteria.
Service Lanes in Kanban
Discover how Kanban accommodates unplanned tasks without disrupting the workflow. Learn about the utility of service lanes in managing unplanned work effectively.
Work-In-Progress (WIP) Limits
Understand the significance of WIP limits in accelerating task flow and eliminating bottlenecks. Engage with practical techniques for setting and adjusting WIP limits based on cycle time measurements and Cumulative Flow diagrams.
Feedback Loops & Continuous Improvement
Embrace Kanban's philosophy of incessant enhancement and the importance of intentional feedback loops. Grasp how feedback drives refinement and ensures optimal outcomes.
Adaptive & Experimental Approaches
Acknowledge the flexible nature of Kanban systems and the importance of adapting to evolving needs. Learn why Kanban is often the optimal choice for work or product management across various scenarios.
Core Kanban Principles
Start with Familiarity: Begin with existing workflows, understanding them thoroughly before making substantial changes.
Embrace Incremental Change
Understand the resistance to change and why gradual, evolutionary shifts are more palatable and effective in long-term adaptations.
Participants will leave with a solid grasp of Kanban's principles, its adaptability to various work scenarios, and its power in enhancing project visibility and efficiency. Attendees will be poised to operate with Kanban-driven systems in their organizations, ensuring projects flow smoothly and efficiently.
Dive Deep into the Kanban Course
Kanban revolutionizes your workflow by offering a bird's eye view on tasks, eliminating the pitfalls of hidden processes. In many systems, unseen workflow steps often result in inconsistent actions and elongated delivery times. Kanban tackles this by making every step transparent.
Crafting Your Kanban
Begin by visualizing the workflow. It is a simple rule: you cannot improve what you cannot see. Each process step comes with a well-defined policy outlining its purpose, responsibility, completion criteria, and the next step. Consistency and clarity are paramount.
Efficiently Handle Urgencies with Service Lanes
While unplanned tasks disrupt Scrum, Kanban's service lanes streamline their integration. With pre-established procedures in place, accommodating sudden tasks becomes hassle-free.
Harness the Power of Work-in-Progress Limits
Speed up your workflow using WIP limits. Start with an intuitive number for each column, then refine it based on the system's cycle time. With tools like Cumulative Flow diagrams, adjustments become data-driven, ensuring a balanced workflow.
Embrace Feedback Loops
Kanban thrives on continuous improvement. Establish feedback loops, keep an open mind for enhancements, and ensure every change offers a worthy return on effort.
Evolve & Collaborate with Kanban
Kanban is adaptable, and so should be your approach. As needs evolve, mold your system accordingly. With its flexibility, Kanban often emerges as the top choice for managing work or products.
Kanban's Guiding Principles
Start Where You Stand: Kanban aims for smooth transitions. Assess your current processes, understand and agree on their nature, and then, after comparing various system cycle times, make informed changes.
Foster Incremental Change: Change is not always easy. Yet, with incremental adjustments, resistance lessens. Over time, as change becomes ingrained in the culture, it is no longer a challenge but an embraced part of progress.
