What happens when we apply kanban across the full value chain? What if you are a traditional company, how far can you improve before organizational structures becomes your key constraint? Can you make great products in a multi team scenario without product owners and project managers?
Let me share with you our learning of applying Enterprise kanban in a traditional company.
What we found:
- We improve time to market by 2x in 1.5 year
- 95% of shipped product ideas reported value adding
- We delivered our products without use of Product Owners, Project managers or a Project Office
(we did however have a marketing function, so another way to put it – it can allow product people to spend more time out with customers)
- Enterprise kanban, Concepts, collaborative design and facilitation were our main tools

As always, always make sure you use ideas wisely in your context. Never copy, always improve.
