  • The class will run from 12:00pm to 4:30pm over two week-ends (four half days).
  • During this class, we work with the online Okaloa Flowlab simulation (https://www.okaloa.com/flowlab) in New Zealand, which is only available to certified Okaloa Flowlab facilitators.

Participants will learn how to design a Kanban system (or improve an existing one) and initiate change with Kanban. They will learn the basic concepts of flow, pull and collaborative improvement. The class includes the use of a Kanban simulation as well as exercises to design an actual Kanban System.

After taking this course participants will be able to design a Kanban system (or improve an existing system) for optimal flow and faster delivery.
