The Kanban® Method Implementation Services
The use of Kanban in organizations allows achieving agility at different levels (Business Agility).
We apply Kanban Maturity Model as a Roadmap for the evolutionary introduction of the Kanban Method both at team and manager levels until it is extended to the entire organization.
The Kanban Method is a set of principles and practices that provide its practitioners with the ability to balance demand and capacity, using numerous techniques to shape demand and improve capacity. We help organizations apply the principles of change and service management of the Kanban Method.
We bring ideas for Professional Solutions

for continuous improvement of the process.
- Definition of the value chain of the current processes
- Identification of division of labor models
- Implantación de sistemas de arrastre con restricciones WIP (Work In Process)
- Visualización emergente del flujo con tableros y tarjetas
- Identificar de problemas y cuellos de botella
- Introducción de mejoras y utilizar datos para tomar decisiones
Application at different levels
in order to balance demand and capacity
- At team level to obtain rhythm and sustainable practices
- At managerial level to improve the predictability and delivery time of the products and services
- At organizational level to achieve greater adaptability to the variations in demand and flexibility in high speed change scenarios
Learning by Doing
Applying it from the very first day by combining the theoretical and practical content and the analysis of real scenarios of the teams
- Value Chain: Definition and examples of value chains. Value and waste discrimination.
- Labor Division types: new features, technical stories, and bugs.
- Pull Systems and WIP Limites to adjust the load to the capacity.
- Flow visualization and management: Visual flow management through boards, cards, and other information radiators, and identification of problems and improvements.
- Meetings: Presentation of meetings usually held in Kanban.
- Metrics and diagrams: Decision-making based on data. Use of common metrics and diagrams in Kanban Systems such as queue size, delivery time, capacity, cumulative flow diagrams, etc.
- Explicit policies: Convenience of explicit policies for decision-making without managerial intervention: how to prioritize, what is understood as finished, how to act in the presence of problems.
- Policies associated with the service classes.

THE KANBAN METHOD IN 5 KEY CONCEPTS
Agility is the ability to adapt to the pace your market demands.
The more often your market changes, the more agile you need to be. The Kanban Methods helps you maximize your agility by offering approaches to:
- Starting the work
- Fast delivery
- Consistency of delivery
- Delivery frequency
Improved predictability through the flow
There are many ways your work can get blocked: dependencies on others, rework, unclear necessities, interruptions, and bottlenecks, to name a few. These delays introduce risk to your ability to provide predictable and reliable products and services. The Kanban Method provides techniques to manage flow, eliminate delays, and control risk.
Commitment to provide services
The Kanban Method allows you to manage your capabilities so that you can make promises you can keep. With Kanban, you can effectively measure the service provided, analyze the impact of the changes you make, and use the data to effectively predict your delivery capabilities.
Knowledge work is largely tangible. Kanban uses visual models like dashboards and metrics to "show" work in progress. This creates visibility into the status and a single point of truth for collaboration.
A culture of respect and leadership
In many companies, the structure of the organization prevents people from reaching their full potential; the Kanban method effectively reveals these weak points. Armed with a greater appreciation for the challenges of your organization and the means to do something about them, the Kanban Method encourages the involvement of your entire workforce to lead the change. It is done in an evolutionary way: starting with what you do now, to avoid resistance to change and introduce unmanaged risks into your organization.
