Team Kanban Certification declares your good command over the concept of Kanban and opens a wide range of opportunities in organisations who work on the principle of Kanban to generate good workflow and effective methods.

Kanban is the authenticated evolution of Agile methodology to adopt in an organisation. It's values and flow process not only enhances the business system but also aims at bringing the best at every stage of the process visualised and implemented. Kanban is the best industrial approach to improve the workflow process and generate effective and efficient performance.

The good lead, which eventually makes the Kanban of great use, is its principle which allows visualising both the process and actual workflow at every stage of development, production and delivery. The subtle art of improving your entire process by keeping an eye on every stage right from the beginning to deliver the expected and actual result is the same is what most of the industrialists use it for.

The use of the Kanban Method is much in need and demand in the software and It industry. As it delivers quality results within time with efficient and effective work performance, the need for Kanban practitioners in the software and IT industry are growing exponentially with time.

Everyone is looking around in an organisation of the process which makes the system much and more agile, and when it comes to Kanban, it has proved to be very effective. So let's dive in and know more about Kanban and why you should become a Kanban Practitioner.

  • Every Kanban system is unique.
  • Each organization is unique, so Kanban does not propose a “one size fits all” approach to the work. Kanban allows the organization to do an honest evaluation of the way it works: the level of demand for work to be done; how the workers deliver on that demand; the rules for when the work is started and how it is handled; the constraints and dependencies; and ultimately, whether the internal and external customers are satisfied.

  • Kanban is about focus and flow
  • Predictability requires steady and consistent behavior. How do you accomplish that in professional services work where there is a high variation and high risk? Kanban University courses teach many approaches to achieving and measuring flow and with flow comes predictability. Flow also means happier customers. Kanban limits the amount of work in progress so the most important work is finished first and more gets done overall, all at a sustainable pace without adding staff or budget.

  • Kanban is about evolutionary change -- not revolutionary
  • The Kanban system starts with simply mirrors the current way work is done. Then pain points are identified. Small changes are made to address only those issues. Small, gradual changes mean a smooth process that gets big results without trauma.

  • Kanban is committed to agility
  • While Kanban can work with timeboxed iterations, Kanban is primarily a flow-based system. It optimizes coordination and communication so work can flow more smoothly. Its managed commitment points and limits on the amount of work in progress assures a focus on the most important work. If market conditions change, Kanban has the super flexibility to shift the selected work.

  • Kanban is grounded in reality
  • While other systems seem to support wishful thinking and guesses, Kanban is big on measurement, validation, and facts about actual performance. The Kanban Method incorporates the scientific method. When a problem or deficiency is detected, an experiment can be tried through a deliberate process. Most importantly, with Kanban we acknowledge the current reality (including problems) without finger-pointing and instead focus on how the entire system can improve.

  • Kanban is a living system
  • The Kanban Method is designed to be expanded and extended. Kanban enthusiasts and thought leaders worldwide have developed new techniques that have resulted in a vast body of knowledge. Kanban approaches now cover topics like product validation, portfolio management, depth charting, capacity allocation, motivational models and much more. Kanban is continually modified and extended in collaboration with the broad Kanban community.

  • Kanban is a risk management method
  • Using Kanban, an organization can look at its current work and develop a risk profile. What are the associated risks for the different types of work? What does this mean for how the work is handled? Because of Kanban’s attention to feedback loops and measurement, there is quick validation of results and performance in high risk areas. As a side benefit, Kanban’s handling of risk is so easy and comfortable that workers at all levels can start thinking in terms of organizational risk when they make decisions

  • Kanban balances demand with capability
  • Demand, the request to do work, can be managed! We call this “shaping demand.” There are several methods we teach to improve how work requests are handled. We also have ways of reducing delay and other factors that eat into productivity. The Kanban Method specifically addresses the challenges of professional services work including the high variation environment of technology businesses.

  • Kanban isn’t only for software development or IT
  • Kanban works for all professional services, which are organizations that produce work that is NOT a physical item. The delivered work might be digital or it might be a service.

    Organizations using Kanban include: education, legal, sales, marketing, HR, design, media, film production, military, customer support, financial, research, insurance, government agencies, and many more.

  • Kanban works at scale
  • Large organizations are using Kanban with thousands of employees, enterprise wide, including many remote offices. Kanban University offers a roadmap for improving enterprise agility based on the Kanban Maturity Model. Tools for strategy, fitness for purpose, and enterprise risk management are provided in the Enterprise Services Planning course.



  • We currently use an Agile framework, such as Scrum. Do we need to stop?
  • No. The Kanban Method is not a framework, and so it does not compete with Scrum or any other Agile framework or process. One of its principles is “Start With What You Do Now”, whether that is Scrum, Waterfall,or something else entirely. It respects your current process and simply gives you additional tools to evolve your existing process to improve over time.

  • We don’t need continuous delivery – we release every 2 weeks/2 months/2 years. Is Kanban right for us?
  • The Kanban Method does not prescribe that you deliver continuously – you can batch your deliveries at whatever cadence is appropriate for your business. The Kanban Method will, however, help reveal what delivery cadence is appropriate for your business and allow you to make adjustments to support it

  • Do I need to go through a big Agile or Digital transformation to use Kanban?
  • The principle “Start With What You Do Now” is intended to avoid installing large forced changes. The Kanban Method respects how you work today, and helps organizations evolve at a pace compatible with their goals and risk tolerance. In many instances it can begin with one manager introducing the method in one service and expanding from there.

  • Do we need a “Kanban Board” in order to apply the Kanban Method?
  • The Kanban Method is used primarily in Knowledge Work where the work is intangible or “invisible”. The Kanban Method introduces the concept of a model to make this work visible and, in doing so, creates a platform to manage it. A “traditional board” is not always required and, in some cases, is inappropriate. For instance: a help desk service with thousands of requests a day may be better off implementing their model through their service management application of choice.

  • Is there certified training on the Kanban Method?
  • Kanban University develops high-quality certified Kanban classes taught by Accredited Kanban Trainers (AKT) across the globe. Training is available for Team Members, Coaches, Managers, and Executives.

  • Is the Kanban Method most effective within teams?
  • The Kanban Method can help teams with their practices, allowing for more sustainability and reliability. The method however, provides much broader benefits when applied to entire services, products, divisions or even entire organizations.

  • I’ve heard Kanban being referred to as a Framework or a Process; is this correct?
  • Frameworks are descriptions of a new process for you to follow. Frameworks might be appealing in that they can take the guess work out of designing a new process. However, they may also lead to significant organization disruption, risks, and costs without necessarily solving your business problems. The Kanban Method does not dictate to you a specific process for you to follow and so is not a framework. Rather it is a Management Method which gives you the tools needed to evolve your existing process to solve business problems specific to your capabilities and market needs

  • Does Kanban work at scaling Agility across an entire organization?
  • The Kanban Method very elegantly scales across an entire organization by introducing Kanban in one service or product line at a time. Because the Kanban Method is not framework, it doesn’t run into the challenges with having a canned process to deal with unknowable challenges at scale.


General FAQs

Kanban is a framework which helps in developing a software model on industrial grounds through a structured process. The structured process is a set of the visual system and visual activity so as to eliminate the traffic encountered at an early stage so as to make the workflow process smooth, cost-efficient and optimised

The exact knowledge and working of Kanban being so authenticated can be traced by various published evidence from Renowned Industrialists who used the principle of and working of Kanban to grow and expand their business and become more productive in their work process.

1)The WorkFlow Process Visualisation:
The Workflow process Visualisation helps to assess and analyse the further steps as an early planning method. The Process begins with the planning and management phase so as to analyse the future results from the request time to product delivering time.

To visualise the workflow in Kanban, a board of columns with cards is created. The row represents the step of the workflow process and the card represents the work module to be done. The process begins at first where every card is initially placed in the list to be done

2)Managing the work by limiting the progress:
Kanban asks to have a simple work culture but that work culture needs to be in the progressive phase. Kanban is not done if one fails to achieve the progress with things they are doing. This Principle of Kanban states that the user should avoid multitasking functioning as it gives inefficiency and leads to generating things which are of no use.

Kanban suggests the technique of Limit WIP(Work in Progress). Users need to use this in to implement the pull system of Kanban. This becomes authentication for the member of the team to complete the backlogs first before taking new work in hand. The pull process is then implemented as it gets the work in progress completed first and then it eventually leads to creating a system of more capacity.

3)Managing the Flow:
Kanban relies on the idea of building a process which is smooth, healthy and efficient. The flow in Kanban is the indication of the appropriate processing of the workflow in the entire system from the initial stage to the final phase. This includes, both the smooth flow and a maintained speed so as to attain valuable efficiency and configured optimisation.

This needs to be done by keeping the track of work on two grounds, one by managing the workflow and other by improving the workflow. This is of great use to manage the workflow at every stage with their respective status. By keeping an eye on the workflow, one is able to eliminate the bottlenecks very easily and this eventually helps to reduce time taken.

4)Making the Process Policies Explicit:
The Principle of process policies is fundamental which links everyone with a simplified policy of workflow systems. The process policies are the guidelines as to how to do the respective work. These guidelines are explicit and are common for every member of the team to follow. This gives them a general outflow of doing the work in an organised way for the organisation.

The value of process policies could be assessed by making most of the use of it as a definition of where, when and how to complete the respective task. This includes a detailed chart of every work processed at its respective stage. The main goal of Kanban with this is to make everyone familiar with a common goal and ask to work for the same.

5)The Implementation of Feedback Loops:
The implementation of feedback loops is of great use as it helps to focus on the essential fields and be regular with all the informative practices. The Informative Practices in Kanban is thus gathered by regular meetings in which a synchronized approach is taken to exchange the knowledge and process of workflow within the team members.

And in this way, this principle of Kanban helps to manage a regular meeting in which feedback is collected from every section of the workflow process. This makes the process synchronised and leads to a much better approach to each and every section of the Workflow Process.

6) Improving with Collaboration and Evolving Experimentally:
The collaborative approach to any workflow system makes it much and more productive with positive aspects of the performance. Thus the problem shared comprehens within the system with a mutual knowledge and understanding of the work process.

This very principle of Kanban sets a scientific approach towards the goal. It allows to perform a manual test and suggests making the changes according to the desired outcome. At the same time, it also helps to analyse the progress of work and makes a concerned approach within the system by mutual sharing and cooperation.

Though passing alone, the Kanban certification exam is a way to get certified as a Scrum Master, but it also involves few processes to have an evaluated and analysed approach.
