Kanban Maturity Model

The Kanban Maturity Model codifies more than 10 years of experience implementing Kanban across diverse industries, in businesses small to extremely large. It plays an important role in creating unity, alignment, a sense of purpose and good governance. Use it to gain a better sense of achievement, provide better products and services, delight your customers, and realize superior business results.

The Kanban Maturity Model maps typical Kanban practices as well as cultural values against 7 organizational maturity levels.
