Building and sustaining a competitive organization requires focusing on creating value for customers, developing the ability to quickly understand and respond to changing demand, and deliver products and services in the short terms and at attractive costs.

Meeting these challenges requires using agile management and team coordination practices, as well as good techniques for problem-solving and correct decision-making.

The Kanban method, used in numerous organizations, has been shown to reduce delivery times by half, as well as production and operations costs, significantly improve collaboration within and between teams, and customer satisfaction.
