Lean Kanban NA - Kanban
The first principle of the Kanban Method is “Start with what you do now”. Take the current work and workers and the current process and apply kanban to improve visibility, collaboration, risk management, and predictability. What does the humane, start with what you do now Kanban Method have to say about change? A lot! We’ve organized the Kanban track in a progression inspired by Kanban’s three “agendas for change”. The sustainability agenda: balancing demand and capability at individual, team and department level, collaborative improvement. The service orientation agenda: anticipating customer needs, achieving end-to-end flow, process innovation. The survivability agenda: the pursuit of fitness for purpose, corporate adaptability, disciplined leadership.
Indefinite Unsustainable Pace - Eric Green
The concept of sustainability is something that human beings have considered for millennia. Yet we still commonly find environments operating under the stress and weight of unsustainable workloads, deadlines, and expectations derived via deterministic methods, magic, and hero culture.

The Inner Game of Kanban - Russell Healy
Timothy Gallwey's seminal work "The Inner Game of Tennis" published in 1974 tells us that there is a much better route to performance than sheer effort and willpower. Potential performance is limited by mental interference. When this interference is quieted, the innate capability of mind and body are released to perform at a much higher level. Interference in the workplace comes in many forms. This talk will discuss how Kanban can be used to quiet interference and unlock the potential performance of knowledge workers.
