About The Event

This class is delivered as a sequence of morning sessions (between 9 am and 12:30 pm), with a 30 minute break in between. The exact schedule for each class will be published here in the next few weeks.


The Kanban Maturity Model codifies more than 10 years of experience implementing Kanban across diverse industries, in businesses small to extremely large. It plays an important role in creating unity, alignment, a sense of purpose and good governance. Use it to gain a better sense of achievement, provide better products and services, delight your customers, and realize superior business results.

The Kanban Maturity Model maps typical Kanban practices as well as cultural values against 7 organizational maturity levels. This becomes a  powerful tool for coaches and consultants leading Kanban initiatives and helping businesses improve their agility. 

KMM provides a proven road-map of guidance on recommended practices to meet improvement goals. This road-map helps eliminate two common failure modes in Kanban and Agile implementations: overreaching causing an aborted start; and false summit plateaus that fail to realize full benefit.


Who Should attend?

Executive Sponsor: “I have a vision for my company. I also know my managers and coaches do all kinds of well-intentioned things in the name of improvement. How can I track the progress of improvement initiatives? How can I be sure they align with the direction where I’m taking my company?”

Coach/Consultant: “My job is to help people and organizations improve and realize their full potential. But I work with many people and groups in this large, complex organization. How can I vary my advice and be sure it is appropriate in their context?”

Manager: “I take responsibility for a service (product, project) and for improving its customer outcomes. How can I be sure my efforts align with other managers and with the overall direction of the company set by the Executive?”
