Team Kanban Practitioner ® Details

The Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP) course gives you the knowledge and tools to boost your Agile team performance and provides the foundations to be an effective Kanban practitioner.

This 1-day course guides you in the foundations of the Kanban Method® and serves as a fast starting point to an alternative path to Real Agility™. This course is designed for you if you are facilitating teams doing projects, operations, development, support, or research. You will learn how to organize your work, improve transparency, identify bottlenecks, visualize workflow, improve communication, and enhance team collaboration.

Learn core concepts of the Kanban Method with a progressive learning approach including a highly interactive simulation and focused collaborative hands-on exercises. Achieve the Team Kanban Practitioner (TKP) designation with Kanban University by successfully completing this course.
Certification Process:

1. Select a date and register for a TKP event

2. Attend a one-day accredited instructor led virtual TKP event

3. Access your TKP certificate and badge on the Kanban University website

Who should attend Team Kanban Practitioner ®:

  • If you have been doing Agile or Scrum for years, this course is a valuable supplement that addresses many common challenges.
  • If you are considering using Kanban, this is a great opportunity to learn about the core practices of Kanban, how Kanban can help your team work better together, discuss some common challenges to getting started, and what results to expect.

The Team Kanban Practitioner course is strongly recommended for Team Leads and HR Managers who are responsible for creating a high performance work environment, Managers who want to transform their organizations, and Project Managers who need to know how to work with Agile and Scrum teams.

  • Team members for almost any kind of service or delivery and anyone in a professional services role. This course should be of particular interest for those who feel overburdened and wish to find some respite to enable them to “get things done” with transparency, quality, improved speed, and predictability.
  • Managers and team members who need help focusing on what to work on now, what to leave until later and what to discard altogether.
  • Those who want to take pride of workmanship and do good quality work in an effective manner.
  • Individuals that need to manage their work more effectively, feel overburdened, have too much work in progress, or that receive either unpredictable or bursts of work at specific times.

TKP is for :

  • Team Leads
  • Project Managers
  • HR Managers
  • Functional Managers
  • Executive Assistants
  • Quality Leads
  • Sales People

Who should NOT attend:

People who are purely technical and have little interest in improving work environments or processes, people who are uncomfortable with group exercises and simulations (perhaps you prefer lecture-based instruction), people who aren’t interested in or responsible for team improvement.

By successfully achieving the Team Kanban Practitioner ® certification, you will be able to:

  • Boost your Agile team performance.
  • Improve your team member’s work environment and well-being.
  • Design and implement a basic Kanban board.
  • Understand work item types and the risks associated with specific work items.
  • Be familiar with a variety of different Team Kanban board designs and styles and know how to choose a design that is best suited for their context.
  • Be aware of the training roadmap and the value and benefits to be derived at each step on the ‘Alternative Path to Agility’.

The above list of learning objectives is in addition to the basic learning objectives required by the Kanban University.

Jerry Doucett

Jerry Doucett VP Training Services, Senior Consultant and Advisory Instructor

Accredited Kanban Trainer, Agile Enterprise Transformation Expert, ICAgile Certified Instructor, Scrum Inc. Scrum Trainer, SAFe Program Consultant® and Enthusiastic Photographer
Jerry Doucett is a Strategy and Delivery expert, Business Advisor, Leadership Consultant, and Professional Trainer with over 30 years hands-on experience in improving business practices, and developing and delivering learning and development programs for software and process management initiatives.

He is currently responsible for the management, development, and delivery of public and private classes and workshops for our clients, while also serving as a Business Improvement Consultant and Coach leveraging Agile and Lean practices for several enterprise business transformations.

Jerry's approach is to provide guidance to individuals and organizations on four key success pillars:

1) cultivating in-house expertise on business improvement practices that leverage Agile and Lean,
2) defining enterprise change management and implementation strategies,
3) designing and building coaching and training programs to organically grow, manage, and improve sustainable capacity, and
4) developing collaborative, long lasting relationships between business & IT partners.

Jerry’s Story

Teaching has always been a passion for me. I remember several of my primary school teachers saying I should consider being a teacher one day because I seemed to have an inclination for it. In high school I partnered a small start-up company where we taught computers and programming languages to youth on evenings and weekends. Much later during mid 1990’s I taught several University night school classes. I loved all of it, but at the time I never thought I’d actually end up working the front of a classroom.

My first exposure to Scrum was in 2008 as a Project Manager at MapInfo Corporation. There was considerable animosity between business and IT because of project issues so we decided to try Scrum in the hope of bringing business and IT together. Eighteen months later we had transformed most of the global organization (North America, Europe and Asia) by building a scaled system of interconnected Agile services and teams. In essence we were operating as Enterprise Agile Coaches and educators but we didn’t call it that – it’s just what we did.

In 2010 I became an Agile Practice Lead in the Royal Bank of Canada’s Agile Centre of Excellence where I spent about 1/2 of my time building and delivering training classes. This was where I realized I would be happy spending the rest of my career teaching Agility. While at RBC I taught Scrum and Agile classes to over 800 people globally which solidified my desire to teach Scrum and Agile for the rest of my career.

Over the next few years I taught and coached Scrum, Kanban, Lean and Agile at organizations like Telus, Canadian Tire, LoyaltyOne, and Sick Kids Foundation. It was rewarding but I wanted more. Then in 2016 I had the fortune of becoming an instructor and coach at BERTEIG. It’s been a fantastic experience. I’ve delivered hundreds of classes to thousands of people and it’s been very rewarding working alongside many world-class Scrum instructors and learning from them.

In January 2019 I added new height and breadth to my career when I became an Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT) with Kanban University. Since then it has been an honour to teach and certify people in Kanban as their eyes light up when they realize it is an alternate path to Agility.

The one thing that eluded me was to become a Scrum trainer for a globally recognized certification agency. In 2016 I earned the Scrum Trainer designation with Scrum Inc. This has allowed me the privilege of providing a meaningful certification option and a balanced view of Agility by combining my own knowledge and teaching with the wealth of globally recognized experience at Scrum Inc. and BERTEIG. I’m really enjoying where this path has taken me and how I leverage it to help others achieve their own personal and professional learning goals and outcomes.

After decades working in the Software and IT industry I have finally found the sweet spot where I hope to finish my career – as an Agile trainer with the credentials to certify people with globally recognized agencies in Scrum and Kanban. I am humbled by the opportunity to represent Jeff Sutherland and his team as one of their trainers. Combining that status with my credential from Kanban University as an Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT) as well as my hands-on experience working in the industry for over 30 years should hopefully provide a balanced and well-rounded experience for any student that chooses to join me in a classroom or learning event.

Testimonials:

“I wanted to acknowledge Jerry for his support and mentorship as he was pivotal as I on boarded to a new role within a new department and new Scrum team; a team newly formed and new to Agile. Jerry supported the team through training including User Story Writing and Agile estimation workshops among many. During team lift off Jerry identified that both road map and product backlog were missing from ‘delivering value’ stream and as a result we saw a team with constantly changing focus, a large number of product responsibilities and a lack of clarity on priorities. The Scrum process does facilitate changing priorities, but it doesn’t help the team adapt. This was an extremely challenging experience but a tremendous learning opportunity for me as I had guidance and gained key insights from this experienced Agile Enterprise Coach. I am fortunate to have been able to rely on Jerry’s leadership, experience and coaching. Thank you!” – Angeline Lim, Program Implementation Manager at Loyalty One

This Team Kanban Practitioner® course was excellent.

  1. Q: What if I'm shy and don't like interacting with people?
    A: Our virtual Learning Events are highly interactive and we make them safe and comfortable for even the most shy people! Our facilitators are experts in creating an online environment where everyone is encouraged to participate without forcing you to do things or say things that might be uncomfortable. This is not like school. This is not like a university lecture. This is not like a high-pressure business meeting.
  2. Q: What if I'm just coming to get a certification?
    A: Okay! We know lots of people who have come to our virtual Learning Events in the past to only achieve a valuable certification. They have told us in no uncertain terms that it was still the best "course" they have ever attended, they learned far more than they expected to, and that they were excited to apply what they learned as soon as possible. Sure, you can attend just for the certification!
  3. Q: What do I need to do to prepare for the online course?
    A:There are three things you must do beforehand to prepare for BERTEIG online Learning Events.
    1. Complete pre-work at training.berteig.com
    2. Set up Zoom for video conferencing
    3. Get familiar with Miro whiteboard collaboration
    For most Learning Events, there is some pre-work which must be completed before the class begins. Failure to do so, will mean rescheduling and application of the $150 Rescheduling Fee.
    Check the description of your Learning Event to see if there are any special requirements.
  4. Q: Do I need a laptop or can I use my phone?
    A: You will need a laptop or desktop for the BERTEIG Learning events. Handheld devices such as tablets and phones are not suitable for the interactive nature of the classes.
  5. Q: Do you provide copies of your slides?
    A: First of all, we usually don't use slides in our Learning Events - instead we have a moderate number of handouts and these are accessed in one place using the BERTEIG Learning Management System (LMS).
    The only exception to this is the SAFe training classes where we are a delivery partner and the materials come directly from Scaled Agile - in those classes there are typically a lot of slides to go through in the training.
  6. Q: When does my Learning Event start and finish?
    A: Normally our Learning Events start at 9:00am sharp and end by 4:30pm (Eastern Time +5:00 GMT). Some Learning Events may have other schedules. Please read the page about your particular Learning Event to know exactly what time it starts and ends. Be mindful that some courses have a substantial Theory portion that needs to be completed prior to the Classroom start.
  7. Q: Do you offer your virtual Learning Events as private sessions?
    A: Yes. Please contact sales@berteig.com for more information and to receive a quote. Typically 'in-house' virtual sessions are scheduled six or more weeks after a contract has been signed - please ask for a quote as soon as possible if you think your need is urgent!
    We can also create custom online Learning Events for an additional fee. We even do train-the-trainer programs for larger organizations who wish to leverage in-house staff.
    Generally, we avoid doing the CSM, CSPO and SSMPO Learning Events as private virtual classes, and we encourage you to attend with your group to a public scheduled session.
  8. Q: What if I have an emergency and have to leave for some/part/most of the virtual class?
    A: It depends on the emergency. If it is a medical emergency for yourself or a family member, we will work with you to either re-schedule or refund your money depending on circumstances. We don't have a fixed policy about this.
    For work related emergencies, we will not issue a refund, but will offer a spot to you at a future course at a 50% discount rate.
  9. Q: What does it mean when a session is "Guaranteed To Run"?
    A:  Most BERTEIG Learning Events are given this designation, which means that if it's scheduled, we will run the class, even with just a few people registered. We do this to respect the time you have allotted to learning. Occasionally something may prevent us from running the class e.g. a health emergency, however we will do everything we can under normal circumstances to run scheduled classes; we take this seriously and it is our commitment to you.
  10. Q: Do you recommend any supplemental learning resources?
    A: Yes. We have a list of recommended reading for agility that is organized by type of BERTEIG Learning Event.
  1. Q: Does BERTEIG partner with others to advertise and deliver training?
    A: Yes. We partner with training resellers who can reach a different audience than the companies we normally serve. If you have a question about our resellers or if you are interested in establishing a partnership relationship please contact sales@berteig.com.
  2. Q: I am a trainer myself. Can I list my courses on this website?
    A: No. This is one type of partnership that we are considering but have not yet established. If you are interested in this type of partnership, please contact sales@berteig.com.
We are a referral centric business. And as such, we stand ready, willing and passionately able to serve anybody important to you by giving them perspective, advice, recommendations, and treating them in a very special way.
