Okaloa Flowlab Advanced simulation for workflows
The Okaloa advanced simulations have been created to help attendees experience flow and particular problems that can occur with flow. This is the first in a new series of advanced simulations. This particular simulation explores the flow of work between teams and the concept of backflow - when an item is discovered to have a problem and gets passed back to the original party / team.
What participants will learn
This course is highly interactive with learning by simulation. At the conclusion of this course, it is expected that attendees will understand the way work passes from one specialty or team to another and how "backflow" can interrupt your system of work making it unpredictable. From this you will learn techniques to conteract backflow and the negative impacts on the system, including:
- Better collaboration amongst teams / specialties
- Better engagement of employees through a less frustrating workflow
- Less waste due to rework / fixing problems
- Improved overall system performance (throughput, lead times)
It is expected that attendees have at least completed the Kanban System Design course so that they understand the basics of kanban systems and how they are designed.
Although full KMP status is encouraged, it's not essential.
Computer with video camera, microphone, speakers / headphones.
Internet connection capable of supporting streaming video meetings.

Who should attend
This course is intended for team members, managers and leaders who want to expand their understanding of Kanban and experience how to handle problems specific to workflow.
Please note, in order to be economically viable, we need at least 6 students to enrol, otherwise we may reschedule the class.
