Kanban University Certifications
Introduction to Kanban University Certifications
The Kanban Method, created by Kanban University CEO David J. Anderson, is a set of visual-forward principles and practices that have been successfully implemented and applied to a wide range of initiatives around the world.
Kanban University (KU) was developed “to build awareness and assure quality in Kanban implementations for professional services work.” The foundation of their certification program is based on 5 basic ideas:
- Power in Simplicity. Kanban offers a low risk, low cost, and evolutionary way to drive change.
- Pragmatic. Kanban can be applied and deliver results immediately.
- Evolutionary, Not Revolutionary. Kanban respects the existing business and seeks to improve upon it, not reorganize it.
- Continually Fit for Purpose. Kanban recognizes that fitness for purpose is always in the eyes of the consumer.
- Understanding. Kanban understands that problems can be managed using quantitative and qualitative techniques.
