Kanban – an applied Systems Thinking Approach in Knowledge and Creative Work

The Kanban Method is a comprehensive approach for introducing systems thinking into any organization on all levels. It fosters a holistic service focus throughout an organization, with the goal of better understanding business risk, support for decision making and improving service delivery activities.
