The Kanban method is an agnostic approach to improving 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 doesn't require to throw away your established practices (no upfront throwing your huge investment). Kanban takes your 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 doing some strong changes on the practices, tools, organization or other 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.​
