This is episode 3 of 10 in our new miniseries where we take you from the why, to the what and eventually to the how of kick-starting your business agility journey with KanbanClick here to start with the first episode.

By now you know how strongly we believe that Kanban is the perfect companion tool to help any organisation on its business agility journey.

But you might also think that "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail".

In this video, I try to connect many loose ends to explain why Kanban is such a perfect tool for supporting the business agility journey:

  • I start out by by emphasising that Kanban is much more than just a visualisation tool,
  • then I use the KMM model to highlight how business agility increases with each higher maturity level
  • and finally I show how the Kanban change management principles support a business's evolution.

Perhaps after watching this video you'll forgive us for proclaiming that Kanban is the Swiss Army Knife of the modern knowledge-worker.

Do you agree? Would love to hear what you think in the comments below!
