How does Kanban handle risk and recovery in global disaster relief and business continuity?
The definition of disaster is a condition in which demand far exceeds capacity to cope. Reports of relief efforts after disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis show lack of coordination, overwhelmed relief workers, and problems with transporting supplies. Before a disaster, preparation means looking at dimensions of risk reduction: vulnerability, efficiency, resilience, system fragility, and the policies of a recovery plan.
Kanban is uniquely well-suited to manage conditions of unbalanced demand vs capacity. This talk looks at the way elements of Kanban can help your business before and after a market disaster, as well as improve serious disaster relief worldwide.
