About The Event

The Kanban method is an agnostic approach designed to improve the flow of knowledge work. It is part non-disruptive and part disruptive. Non-disruption occurs at the beginning of its adoption, given that it requires no discarding of established practices (no upfront disruption of huge investments). Kanban takes the current state as starting point, making it a better economic proposition compared to replacement-required approaches, and makes effective improvement possible. The disruptive part occurs when you and other decision makers come to the conclusion of making some strong changes to the practices, tools, organization, or other components as part of the improvement path. Disruption also occurs from the cultural standpoint, given the maturity in mindset that comes with applying Kanban together with lean mindset.​
