Session Title : Evolving Fit-for-Purpose Organizations using the Kanban Maturity Model
There are two recognized failure modes in Kanban implementations: aborted start - the kanban system design was too ambitious; false summit plateau - a failure to aspire to effective business outcomes, and, or, a failure to create just enough stress to catalyze further changes. Business are subject to evolutionary forces in the marketplace: only the fittest survive and thrive. Kanban provides the mechanism to drive evolutionary change and enure the survival of fit-for-purpose products and services. The main and first purpose of the Kanban Maturity Model is to guide appropriate implementation to avoid both failure modes. The secondary purpose is to provide a roadmap to guide further improvements whilst continuing to avoid both failure modes. The results should enable steady improvement towards fit-for-purpose products and services, and a fit-for-purpose, sustainable, thriving organization with satisfied customers and reliable, predictable economic results. Appropriate use of the Kanban Maturity Model increases the probability of a successful outcome.
