Get ready to level up your organization’s productivity and performance with the Maturity Card Game! Based on the KMM (Kanban Maturity Model), this game is designed to help companies and individuals identify their current level of maturity and take strategic actions to improve it. But don’t let the serious nature of the topic fool you – this game is also a ton of fun! With competition, points, and a winner, you and your team will engage in deep discussions about the root causes of problems and the organizational culture.
Call for Case Studies
Do you have a case study to share, but have struggled to find the time to publish it? The KMM Plus team wants to help you!
The KMM Plus Team will be happy to record you telling the story of your case study. This can be done virtually or in-person. If you are attending the Kanban Leadership Retreat in Austria this June, the KMM Plus team will be on-site to record your case in-person. It’s just like an interview or a webinar, but even more speaker-friendly – with a chance to stop, reformulate, and re-record. 😊
Share your case study, your experience, and give your advice about using the KMM so other practitioners can learn from you. Contact the KMM Plus Team to arrange your recording.

Online Event: Going From “Teams Everywhere” to “Services Everywhere”
Thursday, May 18, 2023
9:00 – 10:30 PM EDT
6:00 – 7:30 PM PDT
You can apply Kanban both to teams and services, but the resulting Kanban system normally accomplishes a very different “agenda.” Learning to differentiate between the two (including when “team == service”) and to pragmatically define a service boundary is a critical skill for a practitioner of the Kanban Method.
Join Fernando Cuenca (Kanban University AKC, AKT, KCP, and KMP) and the Lean Practitioners Association of Saskatchewan as he covers Kanban Agendas, in particular Service Orientation Seeing services, and identifying boundaries and interconnections.
