Who should attend
If you are a member of a team or a leader who wants to understand the critical concepts in Kanban, the Team Kanban Practitioner course is a great place to get started!
However, more experienced practitioners will be more comfortable jumping straight into the Kanban System Design (KMP 1) course, especially if you are directly involved in designing and managing a Kanban system. You may still want to take this Team Kanban Practitioner course first if you are very new to Kanban and its concepts.
Typical attendees include:
Project and Program Managers
Team leads, Managers
Business Analysts, Scrum Product Owners, Scrum Masters
The Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP) credential from the Kanban University will be issued to all participants.
