The Kanban System –if you look at it closely, beyond its common use as a Work Flow Visualization Tool — is a mindset. The Kanban System is a descendant of Lean.
Lean Thinking… and Kanban Thinking… why not?
Shared heritage between Lean and Kanban are the following:
- Focusing on Delivering Value with the least sustainable Lead Time
- Respect for People
- Minimizing waste
- Being Transparent
- Adapting to change
- Continuous Improvement
Kanban system is the original “Start-where-you-are” approach… and from there onwards: continuously improve, mature thy Kanban System to its fullest potential, and evolve (i.e., evolve policies to improve outcomes).
