Often individuals and organizations ask about pre-requisites for Lean Kanban University training classes. In fact, background matters less than intent and goals. Most of our Kanban classes review core content — but taking the courses in sequence is still recommended.

Even those who have some experience with Kanban or some previous non-LKU training will find that they have a lot to learn at all levels of understanding thanks to the broad range of knowledge shared in LKU classes.
