Unlike other introduction classes, this class offers a professional credential, TKP, and an official certificate and has been designed from scratch by the creator of Kanban, David J. Anderson.
David wants to load Kanban knowledge at team level in one one-day class that extracts all core concepts. This allows a general knowledge of the Kanban Method and tools like flow management, design and development of protokanbans, which are the way to begin with in new organizations.
