We hosted a live webinar with the co-author of the Kanban Maturity Model Teodora Bozheva and the CEO of Kanbanize Dimitar Karaivanov to show how combining the KMM with Kanban software could provide additional value to organizations.

The Lean business world is excited by the Kanban Maturity Model (KMM), recently presented by David J. Anderson and Teodora Bozheva. In its nature it is more than a "maturity model" - it’s a framework that makes organizations more agile and adaptable by providing a roadmap that gradually enhances the evolutionary capacity of organizations, ensuring long-term survival.
As Kanban itself, the KMM is not some strictly prescriptive heavy model. It combines all good practices that would facilitate a Lean transformation and has grouped them in six maturity levels. The real value it brings is that it can serve as a bridge between agile consultants and businesses. They will be able to evaluate where the organization is at the current moment and how it is progressing.
As formulated by Teodora Bozheva, the purpose of the KMM is to support the development of the following skills of organizations:
- Relief from overburdening
- Deliver on customer expectations
- Organizational agility
- Predictable economic outcomes and financial robustness
In most cases, this detailed theoretical framework needs an advanced tooling support to be implemented. For organizations with distributed teams, passion for analytics, and full real-time visibility, Kanbanize would facilitate immensely the progress through the KMM levels.
The goal of this webinar is to show how theory and technology come together to empower an organization with the best gear for becoming a true agile hero.
