Systems Failure! A Kanban Failure Analysis

Abstract
This session presents the real life scenario of how an Operations Group’s kanban adoption failed to improve cycle times. The situation can be saved, but thus far upper management has not seen enough gains to warrant expending more effort on it.

After hearing the facts, there will be a five whys session, and then we will use the group’s best practices to come up with solutions. The session ends with Q&A including time to address any other failures, or situations that have not produced good results.
