Kanban System Design (KMP Foundation 1) Certification is offered by Kanban University. This training is ideal for you if you are new Scrum teams who are struggling to reach a sustainable pace of development in the organization or a Scrum team who are overwhelmed by frequent changes in the Sprint scope. This session will help waterfall teams who wish to transition to Agile, but feel Scrum could be too risky, and too disruptive. This course is also for those mature Scrum teams who wish to transition to Continuous Delivery and also for teams who are looking for an “alternative path to agility” in the organization. This program will also help you become faster and more responsive, with better risk management and governance.
