Developing business agility through the Kanban Maturity Model
How can I improve my organizational agility using the Kanban Maturity Model?
Agile is not a state. Agility is a capability that evolves gradually.
Developing organizational agility implies changes to behaviour and practices at all hierarchical levels.
Failing to introduce the right practices in an appropriate context can lead to losing momentum, unnecessary complication of the improvement initiative or social rejection, which in total means not obtaining the expected benefits from the invested effort and energy.
This talk is about how the Kanban Maturity Model (KMM) can be used to grow an agile organization. I will present two cases of using KMM:
(1) to extend the agile management from team level to multiple inter-dependent projects and services in the financial area of a large bank and
(2) for overcoming the strong “I” mentality of individuals and teams in a software development company and build a shared vision, “what We develop” thinking and focus on customer needs.
I will elaborate on how I used KMM to evaluate the initial states of these two organizations, what actions were taken, and the current outcomes.
