In the face of significant internal or external pressure, it is a common practice for organizations of all sizes to convene a dedicated team of highly knowledgeable people to work together as a team to achieve a critical improvement initiative goal such as increase customer satisfaction, improve quality, or reduce lead time for a specific service or product.  You may recognize these special temporary teams in your own organization referred to as Committees, Working Groups, War Rooms, Tiger Teams, and SWAT Teams in addition to other creative and impressive sounding monikers.  While these improvement initiative teams go by many different names, and despite the fact that the team consists of highly skilled and motivated domain experts, it is extremely common to see these superstar teams struggle to effectively mobilize and coordinate their efforts and demonstrate meaningful progress in a reasonable time frame, if ever.

In this session attendees will learn about significant improvement initiatives at JPMorgan Chase where Kanban was introduced to enable teams to very quickly generate visibility of the target problem domain whilst also establishing transparency and the structure upon which teams will collaborate to achieve their goal.  Practical examples of how techniques such as Proto-Kanban, Upstream Kanban, Portfolio Kanban, Service Level Expectations, STATIK, and Cadences were introduced will be shared to give attendees confidence in recognizing opportunities and applying appropriate Kanban techniques and approaches in their own organizational context.
