Lean Kanban University (LKU) has now opened it’s doors for business.
This past week they announced the formation of the first-ever Accredited Kanban Training Program to address the growing demand for high quality training in the Kanban Method.
“The Lean-Kanban University Accredited Kanban Training Program exists to provide confidence to consumers about the quality of the Kanban training that they will receive. The program establishes the quality of Kanban training based on the status of 1) the organization, 2) the individual trainer, and 3) the training curriculum. Member organizations, their trainers and their training curriculums must meet the established criteria in all three areas in order to call their Kanban training “accredited” under the terms of the program.”
“As demand for Kanban grows, consumers worldwide will benefit from trusted Kanban training delivered by our member firms,” said David J. Anderson, the newly-appointed CEO of Lean-Kanban University.”
A friend sent me the PR news clip about this but also included a link to Diploma Mills along with it… possibly to instigate me to write about it in a negative light. As a reporting organization, we write to tell the news, to enlighten people to things going on in the software development community. We report. You decide.
What do you think? Is the community ready for another certification program or diploma to show expertise?
