“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle.

What are the routines you need to put in place to continuously strive for excellence? What are the habits we need to put in place to evolutionary evolve our processes. How do we really continuously improve collaborative? In this session I will share the Habits of Kanban process improvements that I call Kanban Kata. Kanban Kata combines the Kanban Method with Toyota Kata and forms the habits of process improvements for your Technology Business.

This is the talk that I gave at the DARE 2013 conference in Antwerp 15th June 15, 2013 http://www.dare2013.be/speaker/hakan-forss/
