Certified Kanban Ace Coach class. Lead Organizations to Become Agile & Lean. Live Online Classes Worldwide.

This class is created for those students who have already taken our Kanban Ace classes, but now wish to become a Certified Kanban Ace Coach to advance their level of skill, or to lead organizations to become Agile and Lean.


This is not a recorded class, but a live online class delivered directly to you by the founders of AgileLion Institute using WebEx or a similar technology. It is offered to individuals and also to groups world wide.

Unlike other certifications, Certified Kanban Ace Coach professionals do not merely get a grade based on their ability to memorize, or choose the right answer for a multiple-choice test. Our Certification is fully based on a realistic business case from the technology industry. Students must show their skills in a situation that closely resembles a real world Agile project in the technology industry. Students are given two months to complete the business case.

Certified Kanban Ace Coaches are endorsed by AgileLion Institute as people who are truly ready to lead companies and organizations in their Lean Agile journey with Kanban Ace. It is a certification that truly guarantees the person as capable of putting Kanban Ace into practice to deliver value, and improve productivity anywhere.

In addition Certified Kanban Ace Coaches have access to a unique blend of tools that make up Agile 2.0Open Kanban and the best practices from Agile and Lean.

Our Kanban Ace Coaches will receive the update to the upcoming Kanban Ace Framework for Effectiveness or KAFFE free. KAFFE is a special type of Kanban Ace that will offer full support for Scrum via the Akashi Bridge, a new way to estimate using Ace Story Points, an alternative way to scale agility, SAFe support and more. 


Our agenda will include a live Q&A session where we will respond to doubts and practical questions regarding the whole Kanban Ace Course. The class is an hour long, but it may extend further to up to two hours to fully respond to all student questions.

As we mentioned in the benefit section, after the live class students are given two months to solve a practical business case that puts their real world Kanban Ace skills to the test. During those two months we provide email support and guidance. Students may also review their Kanban Ace material from previous classes such as presentations or videos stored in their Lion Pass membership accounts.

When they are done solving the case, students send their cases for our review. We evaluate each submission. Successful students become Certified Kanban Ace Coaches!
