#513 Improve Organisational Flow and Performance by Climbing Kanban’s Maturity Ladder
Click here for a Video Introduction from Annette Vendelbo.

Kanban is often used at the team/project level, but the fact that Kanban scales to the portfolio/strategic level is still a well-kept secret. This presentation will reveal this secret, and explain how you can lead your organisation step by step towards higher agile maturity. Kanban’s six maturity levels will be explained, and you will receive practical advice—spiced with real-life examples—on how you can climb the maturity ladder and maximise the benefits of your Kanban implementation.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) assess where your organisation is on its agile journey, and how applying Kanban's maturity levels can help you get further;
(2) identify how the different types of Kanban boards will move you from team/project Kanban to mature portfolio and strategic Kanban.

Choosing the path of an examined life enhances your humanity and accelerates your capacity to influence. Becoming alive to how words and actions impact others puts this journey into motion.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
