KMP II: Kanban Management Professional – LeanKanban

I attended “KMP II: Kanban Management Professional” course in November 2018. I received “KMP” designation from LeanKanban University as a result of attending and successfully finishing the training.

LeanKanban is introducing their approach as the alternative path to agility.

If you are interested, this is how LeanKanban defines Kanban

Kanban is a method of organizing and managing professional services work.  It uses Lean concepts such as limiting work in progress to improve results.
