Measure and Manage Flow in Practice
Measure and Manage Flow is the third of the core principles of Kanban. It means that the members of the organisation are supposed to measure their progress and use the gathered information to improve their way of working. The most famous measurement tool for Kanban is the Cumulative Flow Diagram, but there are other usable approaches out there.
During the last two years I tried out those different measurement approaches, and in my presentation I’m going to show you those which worked well for me. I’ll also cover how to manage your organisation by using the gathered data, e.g. how to use lead time for fine tuning the delivery process, how the current throughput affects the prioritization and how to spot aged items and what to do with them.
