3 years of Kanban at Sandvik IT: Sustaining Kanban in the Enterprise

Here comes the second article in the Kanban at Sandvik IT series on InfoQ.

Based on the experience from Sandvik IT, I try to answer the question “How to engineer kanban systems to be sustainable and resilient despite the constant level of changes in today’s Enterprise?“.

This article is somewhat more complex and deeper than the first one. It is intended to the coaches out there that are working in an Enterprise environment.

Here are some extracts to pique your interest:

  • “In an Enterprise context, perfect is not nearly as good as sticky.”
  • “[a kanban system] should provide clarity not only of purpose, but clarity of opportunities.”
  • “In other words – and that is somehow quite depressing – there is always a ceiling to any continuous improvements work.”

I want to thank again InfoQ’s editor extraordinaire Ben Linders for his valuable feedback!
