Lean Kanban University Press; 1st edition
The Kanban Maturity Model (KMM) is an innovative and extremely effective tool for consultants and coaches that advise large and medium-sized businesses on the Kanban Method’s application to organizational change and improvement.
David J. Anderson, author of the popular book “Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for your Technology Business,” and Teodora Bozheva, co-author of the “Kanban Maturity Model (PDF),” mapped out seven levels of organizational maturity against the six standard practices of Kanban to verify appropriate application of Kanban practices and successful adoption of the strategy. Kanban Maturity Model (PDF) was developed by David J. Anderson. The KMM outlines a road map and specific measures that businesses may take to achieve both health-for-objective and distinctive business agility.
This book is written for managers, business consultants, company change agents, and coaches who are responsible for guiding medium- and large-scale companies through transitions to improve their operations and service provision. This book is for businesses who strive to superior business agility; to deliver match-for-objective services; to make customers comfortable; and to provide the security of long-term survival associated with mature organizations that constantly meet or surpass the expectations of their customers.
