With only a few principles which Kanban prescribes it can’t be treated as a method which directly shows how to organize a team or the way it works. What more, it is advised to start Kanban implementation without changing the process which is currently in place.
How Kanban catalyzes improvements then? Basing on examples from different teams the presentation shows patterns of emergent properties – best practices and process improvements which are introduced with no direct management action. As these behaviors are emergent not only are they adjusted to local specifics but also there’s little resistance against them. This mechanism makes Kanban, despite the method’s simplicity, a great tool to foster improvements.
