About The Event

KANBAN MATURITY MODEL (KMM) (5 half-days)

The Kanban Maturity Model codifies more than 10 years of experience implementing Kanban across diverse industries, in businesses small to extremely large. It plays an important role in creating unity, alignment, a sense of purpose and good governance. Use it to gain a better sense of achievement, provide better products and services, delight your customers, and realize superior business results.

The Kanban Maturity Model maps typical Kanban practices as well as cultural values against 7 organizational maturity levels. This becomes a  powerful tool for coaches and consultants leading Kanban initiatives and helping businesses improve their agility. 

KMM provides a proven road-map of guidance on recommended practices to meet improvement goals. This road-map helps eliminate two common failure modes in Kanban and Agile implementations: overreaching causing an aborted start; and false summit plateaus that fail to realize full benefit.

KCP Credential

Kanban University offers the Kanban Coaching Professional (KCP) designation to those completing the KMM+KC training program. The formal requirements for the KCP designation are: have a Kanban Management Profesisonal (KMP) designation first, complete this KMM class, then the Kanban Coaching (KC) class, then pass Kanban University-administered KCP exam (accurately answering 75% of the questions). Taking the exam is free, repeat attempts are allowed every 10 days. Kanban University charges a $500 (USD) fee  after the successful attempt to assign the KCP designation.

Class Schedule

The class duration, 2-3 full days in the old in-person format, has become 5 half-day modules in the remote format, Monday to Friday. The start time is chosen to fit North American participants, coast to coast. We use Zoom for video and Miro as the virtual whiteboard. Each half-day session includes a substantal break in the middle.

KCP Option

Students may bundle this class with Kanban Coaching (KC), which will take place several weeks after the KMM class. Choose "KMM + KC Bundle" at checkout.
