Kanban Guide

born 2020
Kanban
as per Kanban Guide
striking A BALANCE BETween effectiveness, efficiency, and predictability
Definition of workflow, Three practices, four metrics
no events/cadences, roles, values, principles, direction, timeboxes
signaling catalyzes frequency of feedback loops
A definition of the individual units of value that are moving through the workflow. These units
of value are referred to as work items (or items).
A definition for when work items are started and finished within the workflow. Your workflow
may have more than one started or finished points depending on the work item.
One or more defined states that the work items flow through from started to finished. Any work
items between a started point and a finished point are considered work in progress (WIP).
A definition of how WIP will be controlled from started to finished.
Explicit policies about how work items can flow through each state from started to finished.
A service level expectation (SLE), which is a forecast of how long it should take a work item to
flow from started to finished.
at a minimum, members must create their DoW using all of the following elements:
Definition of
Worklow
Work in Progress (WIP): The number of work items started but not finished.
Cycle Time: The amount of elapsed time between when a work item starts and when a work item
finishes.
Work Item Age: The amount of time between when a work item started and the current time. This
applies only to items that are still in progress.
Throughput: The number of work items finished per unit of time.
The four basic metrics of flow that kanban system members using Kanban need to track are as
follows:
flow metrics
initially based on a guess, later based on data
Service Level
Expectation
The first practice is defining and visualizing the workflow.
The visualization of that one or more workflows is essentially the Kanban board.
Kanban helps us optimize signaling to see what we need to do to help our work flow.
1st practice
Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
What active work we should focus on or bring in today
How much work we’re comfortable doing at the same time
Our aspiration for more predictability
Visualizing:
relatively aged work
blocked work
dependencies, including those neither aligned nor acknowledged
Focusing on the following allows us to navigate complexity more easily:
1st practice
The 2nd practice of actively managing items in a workflow is about kanban system members
addressing items to focus on, unblock, finish and feed.
By reviewing what the members need to work on together today, they continually refresh their
thinking to address the complexity they’re facing.
2nd practice
Team 1 Team 2
controlling work in progress (WIP) tightens the kanban system members' focus.
This allows for slack time for thinking and unplanned eventualities.
When the kanban system members release sooner, feedback loops also get tighter.
2nd practice
Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
The 3rd practice is improving the workflow(s).
Kanban system members can change the definition of workflow(s) at any time, including which
columns on the Kanban board to add or remove.
However, the members might need to strike a balance between allowing the system to settle to
observe trend changes following a policy change and adapting to the current reality by making
multiple changes in the definition of workflow.
3rd practice
Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
if 60 to 90% of items should not be built, why fill the funnel with stuff?

Kanplexity
born 2019
refreshed 2022
You can use any Kanban or flow approach and still benefit from Kanplexity as long as it abides by the key tenets of the Kanban Guide.
Team – A team does the work. A team in the face of complexity is small, diverse, self-
managing, and cross-skilled, where members care about each others’ work and learn how to
do their work.
Team members give, reward, and earn trust.
Crew – A crew does the work. A crew in the face of complexity is diverse and cross-skilled.
Trust is a byproduct of intensively trained individuals, each of whom has a specific well-
honed skillset.
They have trained how to team up quickly, e.g., airline pilots quickly team up with other
flight crew they have never worked with before.
Executives need to cultivate an environment where the team or crew is ready, willing, and
able for work in the problem space, discovery, delivery, and value validation.
Team, Crew
Is careful to avoid too much focus on the process at the expense of value
Promotes value validation over output
Stewards teams, crews, and the organization for continual improvement
Resolves issues that teams and crews cannot solve
In Kanplexity, a person acting as a guide monitors the Cynefin “compass” for the team or
crew and facilitates the discovery of “the next right thing.” Leadership is not necessarily
defined as a position.
The guide is a steward or backstage leader. The guide is a steward, backstage leader, or agile
leader.
Providing they behave as per the tenets of Kanplexity, examples of guides might include
change agents, coaches, mentors, teachers, facilitators, service leaders, product leaders,
service managers, product managers, managers, leaders, executives, team members, or crew
members.
The guide:
Guide
Is clear to people on teams or crews and customers.
Focuses on the short- to medium-term possibilities.
Is revisited during reviews.
A direction of travel is a loose purpose that can flex depending on what we learn. The
direction of travel evolves, pivots, or stops.
While goals are helpful for complicated work, it’s crucial to inform decision-making with
evidence for and against the goal’s validity.
In the complex domain, the direction of travel:
The Cynefin Framework is like a compass for discovering and doing “the next right thing.”
We should behave in a way that’s appropriate for the Cynefin domains. Often different
aspects of a problem are in all domains, so be careful about oversimplifying.
Direction of Travel
Too much rhythm can be a problem.
Too little rhythm can be a problem. We need to step back and reflect periodically to
avoid execution bias
execution bias is more likely to occur without rhythm. We want to avoid working on the
wrong thing, and rhythm helps to rein us in.
It’s possible to deal with complexity without a rhythm, but it takes discipline.
Having a routine and rhythm helps us deal with complexity, particularly if customer data,
validated learning and flow data inform decision-making.
However, the old adage of “everything in moderation” applies:
Kanplexity strives to find the right rhythm and balance, and it steps away from a one-size-
fits-all approach.
Rhythm
in replenishment, teams/crews can use throughput or probabilistic forecasting to guide selecting
the number of items they can reasonably get Done in a time period, e.g., a cycle.
Flow-based
Replenishment
In the standup, a review of blockers and relative work item aging can help manage items in progress
in the direction of travel
Flow-based
Standup
Team 1 Team 2
review - probabilistic forecasting can help manage expectations with its caveat that we’ll have a
more accurate forecast next week/cycle/month
Flow-based
Review
retrospective encourages the Team or crew to assess where work is getting stuck, the definition of
workflow, and monitor their aspiration for the service level expectations (SLE) against real-world
data
Flow-based
Retrospective
pruning, refining, full-kitting, or rightsizing the work, as needed, for all domains
replenishment, as needed, for all domains
standup for complicated, complex, and liminal complicated-complex
review for complex, liminals, and positive chaos
retrospective for liminals, complicated and complex
The direction of travel – creation, re-alignment, evolution, communication
Reviews of the definition(s) of workflow
Facilitation and preparation for:
Review of policies, team alliances, and working agreements
Explicit Policies
The team or crew should be clear about who owns each of the following:
cycles & interactions catalyze more frequent feedback loops
guide cultivates an environment where agility can grow
cynefin® is the compass for decision making
iteratively revisit the problem space
discover to deliver better ideas
striking A BALANCE BETween effectiveness, efficiency, and predictability
Definition of workflow, Three practices, four metrics
no values or principles
Kanplexity
flexibility over straight-jacketing; a toolbox for dealing with deep complexity
We're missing a trick if we restrict kanplexity to the team/crew
Upstream and
Downtream expansion
Upstream and
Downtream expansion
definitions
organizational agility
multi-team or multi-team patterns
about projects with complex work
Context is king. Kanplexity is deliberately flexible but not so flexible that it enables
simple “rebranding” of non-agile work.
We hope Kanplexity helps people who are authentic about agility, whether in product
management, project management, Lean, Agile, Theory of Constraints, DevOps, the Vanguard
Method, or otherwise.
Kanplexity recommendations are based on the results of many experiments, and benefits
diminish the more of them we ignore. Being open to the recommendations helps us avoid the
road to negative chaos.

Endnote
The now famous HBR paper on Cynefin (Snowden and Boone, 2022) refers to several years of
work prior to 2007.
Profound gratitude to Dave Snowden, Mary E. Boone, their colleagues, and all those
practitioners who have contributed to Cynefin (Cynefin.io, 2022, 1).
The EU Field Guide for managing complexity (and chaos) in times of crisis (Centre, 2022) was a
significant inspiration for Kanplexity; thanks to Alessandro Rancati and Dave Snowden.
Intent-Based Leadership® (Intent-Based Leadership® International with L David Marquet,
2022) and David Marquet’s focus on execution bias, the red work, and the blue work (InfoQ,
2022, 2) had a key influence on Kanplexity; deep gratitude to David Marquet.

Q&A
Optimize the flow of value, not the flow of activities
Prioritize within throughput, adjust for noise
Better to have slack than overwhelm
As needed, split items into smaller but valuable items
Show empathy within, upstream, and downstream
Unblock, focus, finish, & feed, Do ensemble work as needed
Look after work item aging
Lower relative item aging => Lower cycle times => after a time lag.. More stable
throughput, then higher throughput
Get stronger flow… without adding more people
Expand optimization of flow upstream and downstream, and at higher levels
Mind the flow

  • 5. Kanban as per Kanban Guide striking A BALANCE BETween effectiveness, efficiency, and predictability Definition of workflow, Three practices, four metrics no events/cadences, roles, values, principles, direction, timeboxes signaling catalyzes frequency of feedback loops
  • 6. A definition of the individual units of value that are moving through the workflow. These units of value are referred to as work items (or items). A definition for when work items are started and finished within the workflow. Your workflow may have more than one started or finished points depending on the work item. One or more defined states that the work items flow through from started to finished. Any work items between a started point and a finished point are considered work in progress (WIP). A definition of how WIP will be controlled from started to finished. Explicit policies about how work items can flow through each state from started to finished. A service level expectation (SLE), which is a forecast of how long it should take a work item to flow from started to finished. at a minimum, members must create their DoW using all of the following elements: Definition of Worklow
  • 7. Work in Progress (WIP): The number of work items started but not finished. Cycle Time: The amount of elapsed time between when a work item starts and when a work item finishes. Work Item Age: The amount of time between when a work item started and the current time. This applies only to items that are still in progress. Throughput: The number of work items finished per unit of time. The four basic metrics of flow that kanban system members using Kanban need to track are as follows: flow metrics
  • 8. initially based on a guess, later based on data Service Level Expectation
  • 9. The first practice is defining and visualizing the workflow. The visualization of that one or more workflows is essentially the Kanban board. Kanban helps us optimize signaling to see what we need to do to help our work flow. 1st practice Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
  • 10. What active work we should focus on or bring in today How much work we’re comfortable doing at the same time Our aspiration for more predictability Visualizing: relatively aged work blocked work dependencies, including those neither aligned nor acknowledged Focusing on the following allows us to navigate complexity more easily: 1st practice
  • 11. The 2nd practice of actively managing items in a workflow is about kanban system members addressing items to focus on, unblock, finish and feed. By reviewing what the members need to work on together today, they continually refresh their thinking to address the complexity they’re facing. 2nd practice Team 1 Team 2
  • 12. controlling work in progress (WIP) tightens the kanban system members' focus. This allows for slack time for thinking and unplanned eventualities. When the kanban system members release sooner, feedback loops also get tighter. 2nd practice Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
  • 13. The 3rd practice is improving the workflow(s). Kanban system members can change the definition of workflow(s) at any time, including which columns on the Kanban board to add or remove. However, the members might need to strike a balance between allowing the system to settle to observe trend changes following a policy change and adapting to the current reality by making multiple changes in the definition of workflow. 3rd practice Service Level Expectation: 6 days or less 85% of the time
  • 14. if 60 to 90% of items should not be built, why fill the funnel with stuff? discovery, delivery

  • 24. Team – A team does the work. A team in the face of complexity is small, diverse, self- managing, and cross-skilled, where members care about each others’ work and learn how to do their work. Team members give, reward, and earn trust. Crew – A crew does the work. A crew in the face of complexity is diverse and cross-skilled. Trust is a byproduct of intensively trained individuals, each of whom has a specific well- honed skillset. They have trained how to team up quickly, e.g., airline pilots quickly team up with other flight crew they have never worked with before. Executives need to cultivate an environment where the team or crew is ready, willing, and able for work in the problem space, discovery, delivery, and value validation. Team, Crew
  • 25. Is careful to avoid too much focus on the process at the expense of value Promotes value validation over output Stewards teams, crews, and the organization for continual improvement Resolves issues that teams and crews cannot solve In Kanplexity, a person acting as a guide monitors the Cynefin “compass” for the team or crew and facilitates the discovery of “the next right thing.” Leadership is not necessarily defined as a position. The guide is a steward or backstage leader. The guide is a steward, backstage leader, or agile leader. Providing they behave as per the tenets of Kanplexity, examples of guides might include change agents, coaches, mentors, teachers, facilitators, service leaders, product leaders, service managers, product managers, managers, leaders, executives, team members, or crew members. The guide: Guide
  • 26. Is clear to people on teams or crews and customers. Focuses on the short- to medium-term possibilities. Is revisited during reviews. A direction of travel is a loose purpose that can flex depending on what we learn. The direction of travel evolves, pivots, or stops. While goals are helpful for complicated work, it’s crucial to inform decision-making with evidence for and against the goal’s validity. In the complex domain, the direction of travel: The Cynefin Framework is like a compass for discovering and doing “the next right thing.” We should behave in a way that’s appropriate for the Cynefin domains. Often different aspects of a problem are in all domains, so be careful about oversimplifying. Direction of Travel
  • 27. Too much rhythm can be a problem. Too little rhythm can be a problem. We need to step back and reflect periodically to avoid execution bias execution bias is more likely to occur without rhythm. We want to avoid working on the wrong thing, and rhythm helps to rein us in. It’s possible to deal with complexity without a rhythm, but it takes discipline. Having a routine and rhythm helps us deal with complexity, particularly if customer data, validated learning and flow data inform decision-making. However, the old adage of “everything in moderation” applies: Kanplexity strives to find the right rhythm and balance, and it steps away from a one-size- fits-all approach. Rhythm

  • 37. We're missing a trick if we restrict kanplexity to the team/crew Upstream and Downtream expansion
  • 39. definitions organizational agility multi-team or multi-team patterns about projects with complex work Context is king. Kanplexity is deliberately flexible but not so flexible that it enables simple “rebranding” of non-agile work. We hope Kanplexity helps people who are authentic about agility, whether in product management, project management, Lean, Agile, Theory of Constraints, DevOps, the Vanguard Method, or otherwise. Kanplexity recommendations are based on the results of many experiments, and benefits diminish the more of them we ignore. Being open to the recommendations helps us avoid the road to negative chaos. appendices: Endnote
  • 40. The now famous HBR paper on Cynefin (Snowden and Boone, 2022) refers to several years of work prior to 2007. Profound gratitude to Dave Snowden, Mary E. Boone, their colleagues, and all those practitioners who have contributed to Cynefin (Cynefin.io, 2022, 1). The EU Field Guide for managing complexity (and chaos) in times of crisis (Centre, 2022) was a significant inspiration for Kanplexity; thanks to Alessandro Rancati and Dave Snowden. Intent-Based Leadership® (Intent-Based Leadership® International with L David Marquet, 2022) and David Marquet’s focus on execution bias, the red work, and the blue work (InfoQ, 2022, 2) had a key influence on Kanplexity; deep gratitude to David Marquet.

Optimize the flow of value, not the flow of activities Prioritize within throughput, adjust for noise Better to have slack than overwhelm As needed, split items into smaller but valuable items Show empathy within, upstream, and downstream Unblock, focus, finish, & feed, Do ensemble work as needed Look after work item aging Lower relative item aging => Lower cycle times => after a time lag.. More stable throughput, then higher throughput Get stronger flow… without adding more people Expand optimization of flow upstream and downstream, and at higher levels Mind the flow
