Kaizen - Continuous Improvement is the Japanese word for “Continual Improvement”. Kaizen consists of two words i.e. KAI – Change and Zen-Good (For Better). So literal meaning of Kaizen is “Change for Better” through little steps in our Professional life, Personal life and Social life.

Kaizen - Continuous Improvement helps the organizations to generate a process-oriented way of thinking and develop strategies that assure continuous improvements involving people at all levels of an organization hierarchy. The message of the Kaizen strategy is that not a day should pass by, without some kind of improvement being made somewhere in the organization.

Kaizen - Continuous Improvement aims to eliminate the wastes from all the processes by involving 100% employees in the organization. Kaizen helps individual to think out of box and bring in Good Changes by using less resources.

If I summarize this course in one sentence?

Learn production-proof AWS EKS Best Practices using Handson concepts and labs (e.g. Helm, Dashboard, Ingress, SSL Termination, AWS ELB Logging, RBAC, IRSA, CA, HPA, Monitoring).

Please check preview videos to see if this course is really for you

Are you one of the below?

  • You want to learn how to use managed Kubernetes cluster on AWS EKS

  • You feel overwhelmed and don't know where to start with AWS EKS

  • You learned Kubernetes with minikube but don't know how to deploy K8s cluster on AWS

  • You want to know production-ready AWS EKS best Practices such as SSL Termination at AWS ELB, RBAC (Role Based Access Control), IRSA (IAM Role for Service Account), CA (Cluster Autoscaler using IRSA)

  • You want to be able to configure SSL for AWS ELB using K8s ingress controller

  • You want to be able to give right permissions to AWS IAM users in K8s cluster using ClusterRoleBinding (RBAC: Role Based Access Control)

  • You don't know how pod-level AWS IAM authentication (IRSA: IAM Role for Service Account) works

  • You want to learn how to monitor K8s apps using Prometheus and Grafana

Who should take this course

  • you have decent knowledge of AWS (EC2, VPC, subnet, load balancer, IAM, etc)

  • you have learned Kubernetes fundamentals (pod, service, deployment, ingress, configmap, role, etc)

  • you don't know how to go about learning Kubernetes on AWS

  • you have development experience in Kubernetes YAML resources

  • you want to learn about production-ready best practices for AWS EKS regarding security, monitoring, scaling, and performance

  • you want to learn ins and outs of AWS EKS from a cloud DevOps working at an US company in SF

  • you want to improve your AWS EKS knowledge and skills

who should NOT need to take this course

  • you already know a lot of AWS EKS

  • you are not planning on using Kuberenetes on AWS

  • you have never used AWS (EC2, VPC, subnet, load balancer, IAM, etc) before

  • you have never deployed pods in Kubernetes cluster

In this course, you will learn various aspects of AWS EKS best practices such as:

  • how to setup K8s dashboard with RBAC

  • how to monitor K8s cluster and apps using Prometheus and Grafana

  • how to configure SSL Termination at AWS ELB created by ingress controller using k8s service YAML

  • how to authenticate and authorize AWS IAM users to AWS EKS cluster using aws-iam-authenticator, aws-auth ConfigMap, and RBAC (Role Based Access Control) aka ClusterRoleBinding

  • how to authorize Pods to AWS resources by creating pod-level IAM permission using IRSA (IAM Role for Service Account)

  • how to scale EKS worker nodes automatically using CA (Cluster Autoscaler using IRSA) and how to stress test it

  • how to scale pods automatically using HPA (horizontal pod autoscaler) and how to stress test it

  • why you shouldn't use eksctl managed worker nodes in production

  • why you should be careful when using EKS's default AWS-VPC-CNI plugin, because Pod IP pool gets exhausted based on EC2 instance type

6 Reasons why you should take this course:

1. Instructed by a cloud DevOps engineer (with CKA and certified AWS DevOps pro) working at US company in SF

I have been pretty handson with Kubernetes, AWS, and AWS EKS. With 6.5+ industry experience in both North America and Europe, I breakdown and explain hard concepts using diagrams

2. Abstract Concepts Explained with Diagrams

You usually don't find a solution in multiple languages. Catered for Java backend developers and Python developers. Also beneficial if you know one of them but also want to learn the other.

3. Updated Knowledge about AWS EKS in 2020

Some of the tools (such as kube2iam for pod-level IAM permissions) are outdated. I will demonstrate 2020-updated version of tools and concepts.

4. A Little Detail Matters in Production

When setting up AWS EKS cluster for production, you need to pay lots of attentions to security, reliability, and resilience. I have included how to secure HTTP connection to AWS ELB, how to enable AWS ELB access logs, how to configure pod-level IAM permission using IRSA, how to authorize AWS IAM users to K8s cluster using RBAC, how to setup CA with IRSAetc

5. Tons of handson!

I won't bore you with dry lectures. Instead every concepts are paired with handson demo.

The module encapsulates Marching trends of learning has had its toll with the manipulation of Teachers’ Choice and their expertise of knowledge. The initiative is towards activating a student oriented rather than a task oriented classroom. This  requires more of a connect, a relationship with the student and at times apologizing to students as a learning moment. As a teacher, it is our prime requisite to make progress visible, adjust grading practices, model desired habits and don’t get carried away with the politics of the school, the students and the parents.

Join speaker, author, and consultant Mark Graban for an introductory online class to learn and practice methods from his book, Healthcare Kaizen: Engaging Front-Line Staff in Sustainable Continuous Improvements.

You might have heard about other healthcare organizations that are using “Lean” improvement practices. In particular, many health systems are using “Rapid Improvement Events” (aka “Rapid Process Improvement Workshops”) as a way of driving change. However, a growing number of organizations are also embracing “daily Kaizen” — or a process to facilitate small, meaningful changes as an ongoing continuous improvement methodology. If your organization has not yet started “going Lean,” then daily Kaizen is a great way to get started before making the leap into larger events. 

This class will give you the introduction you need to confidently get started with this methodology. You'll get tips and lessons learned from organizations that have successfully created a culture of continuous improvement.

What is Kaizen ?

· Kaizen is a japanese term (改善) which means to change and put back together in a better way. Kaizen is an all employee involvement strategy of eliminating the wastes from all the process and bring a culture of continuous improvement using lesser resources.

· In English definition, it means ‘Continuous Improvement’.

Do you know that almost all FORTUNE 500 companies are using or had used Kaizen during their business growth curve? Be it FORD motor company which survived and recovered the rough times during Great recession of late 2000s, Herman Miller or even aerospace technology company like Lockheed Martin during development of Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) system, Kaizen has always been in lead role. We also may have heard the stories how Toyota used Kaizen for improving productivity and quality. It is for this reason that even Government sectors of many nations have also been largely interested in implementing this technique to improve public sectors.

We will then head for kaizen leadership. We will learn about the traits of a successful Kaizen Leader, Team Dynamics and role of a Kaizen leader or a kaizen facilitator.

We will also study about different motivational theories that can help a kaizen leader motivate the team members.

We will then study the Kaizen steps in an in-depth approach following a PDCA pathway and also learn to sustain and communicate any improvement projects.

  • Leadership and Team management skills
