When we talk about Kanban we often focus on how the increased attention to flow can benefit our organisations and customers economically. We talk about the improvements it can bring by helping us reduce lead times, manage risk, discuss cost of delay etc. Creating a culture of continuous improvement is also at the heart of the Kanban method but again we often target the economic benefits when we strive to identify and remove waste, increase predictability and produce higher quality software. But what does Kanban mean for the individuals who work inside the system? In this session we’ll explore how the Kanban principles and practices can foster understanding, belonging and purpose in the workplace.
