Kanban Cadences - San Francisco
KC - Kanban Cadences (Throughput Kanban) You have used the Kanban method for a while now, doing good on lead time reduction and reached the point where you need to get sales up & costs down and just can’t figure out how with the basic body of knowledge of the Kanban method? This class is for you with Real Kanban, a 21st century Kanban that takes you leaps beyond the Kanban method. You want to be laser focussed on your next Kanban system improvements by acting on common cause variation? That makes sense but unfortunately the Kanban method can’t help you identify common cause variation. You simply need a little help from Real Kanban to get you there and stop improving away from the constraint of your system where it is not needed and costly! You wish to tame the intrinsic variability accumulated by the passage of time? Now is the time to scale up your Kanban systems? The Kanban Cadences class tackle these questions and so much more! In this class, you will learn additional ways to leverage and scale Kanban in your organisation by showing the economic benefits of flow, how effortless it is to scale Kanban and ways of providing feedback and strategic alignment to the organisation in a fashion that resembles the 21st century. While other Kanban training offerings focus on one approach, this class encompasses the at times divergent thinking of the best Kanban thought leaders: Teodora Bozheva, David Anderson (creator of the Kanban method), Steve Tendon (Tameflow – The Real Kanban), Daniel Vacanti, Klaus Leopold, Donald Reinertsen, Patrick Steyaert, Pawel Brodzinski, Mike Burroughs & Dimitar Bakardzhiev. Who Should Attend This class is for those who wish to better manage Kanban systems and scale up their existing fleet of Kanban systems with the best thought leadership available on the market today.
