The Systems Thinking Approach to Introducing Kanban (STATIK), is a core element of the LeanKanban University (LKU) Kanban System Design (KSD) aka Kanban Management Professional I (KMPI) foundation course.

A central characteristic that runs through the Kanban Method is its ability to convey highly effective approaches to managing complex work in a clear and simple way, such that students of Lean Kanban University classes leave the classroom with powerful tools that they can apply immediately to the improvement of their organizations. However, students sometimes struggle to fully realize the potential benefits after they return to their own work environments.

What are the steps of translating classroom learning into acts of leadership that result in the shared understanding and agreement required for organizational introduction of Kanban?

Here's a clue:

1) People need time and space to learn to think together in a new way to reveal better ways of seeing and understanding the work that they do.

2) The managers responsible for the service need the time and space to deeply explore the questions and exercises of STATIK together with simple models and tools.

Since acceptance as an Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT) in January 2017, the presenter has had opportunities to deliver several private and public KSD courses. He has also provided follow-up consulting for students from various levels of management — from first line managers to VPs responsible for multiple complex, interdependent services.

The purpose of this seminar is for one rookie to share with other rookies some of the simple and effective tools, models and tips for successful Kanban adoption that he has gleaned from mentors and students alike in an initial year of practice as a Lean Kanban Accredited Kanban Trainer and Kanban Consultant.
