What would really help is if we could somehow see all this work as a service and then optimise it as we would optimise any other service.

Fortunately we can, which is what the third Kanban Lens is all about...

In the next episode you'll learn about Kanban Lens 4, which tells us to see our entire organisation as a network of interconnected services.
