Course description

Kanban Systems Improvement (KSI)

Kanban Systems Improvement (KSI) is the second course required to complete the Kanban Management Professional accreditation. This course continues the Kanban University syllabus. It is aimed at people who are currently using a Kanban system, have prior experience with Kanban, or are currently in the KMP training series.

Kanban Management Professional classes are highly interactive courses that lay the foundation of the principles and practices of The Kanban Method, an evolutionary approach to change. These courses have been created by leading Kanban experts including David J Anderson.

The Kanban Method offers pragmatic, actionable, evidence-based guidance that can be taken away and implemented immediately.


Attendees are expected to have read Kanban by David J Anderson or Kanban from the Inside by Mike Burrows. Participants should have attended the Kanban System Design class.


Upon completion of both Kanban System Design and Kanban Systems Improvement, participants will receive the Kanban Management Professional (KMP) accreditation from Kanban University, a globally-recognised accreditation of achievement.

David was engaging, articulate and as a change manager the course has opened up a plethora of new conversations we should be facilitating at team and organisation level.

– Morayo Bamidele, Delivery Lead

Really enjoyed (my) Kanban training with David Spinks. Would highly recommend. Caring, smart, inspiring.

– Jim Head, Operations Director and Co-Founder

Great experience on Kanban courses. Super knowledgable trainers and a great community for support post training.

– Matthew Spottiswoode, Delivery Lead

David’s facilitation of the training was simply great. The use of whiteboards, discussions, games and quizzes reinforced what was covered in the lessons. KSI’s contents are especially useful and relatable to my current team situation, triggering me to think about how I can help the team to improve.

– Yuheng Shen, Agile Coach
