how we do it:

With a distinguished, flawless track record of on-time, on-budget and on-scope deployments, Kanban is proud of our unique Agile development and delivery methodology, Kanban+. We know typical technology projects are unpredictable; exhibit an inability to enable business agility; and lack strong governance, cost control, transparency, and quality decision making. We’ve addressed these shortcomings with Kanban+. We can extend this methodology to manage client teams and third parties throughout the project lifecycle, or apply it strictly to our own scope and focus. Our teams and clients have realized the following benefits from Kanban+:

Prioritize Daily Tasks

Kanban+ utilizes visual cues to allow all team members & stakeholders to monitor status. Bottlenecks are quickly identified and alleviated. Changes in requirements are prioritized and re-prioritized daily.

Drive Organizational Maturity

Kanban+ is a catalyst for change. Not only is it a way of introducing Agile concepts in an evolutionary manner, but it is also a way of gradually improving the maturity of a client’s technology organization to deliver against business drivers.

Optimized Workflow

Potential impact from changes in the requirements can be addressed easily. Cross-Product synergies & conflicts are shown.

In a world where consumers voice their expectations and expect brands to respond, a slow-moving design and development process can leave your brand behind the innovation curve. Kanban+ pulls from the best aspects of Agile and Lean development, particularly Kanban, and traditional waterfall development and project management techniques.

According to a recent case study of the BBC [1] Lean Software Management BBC Worldwide Case Study By Dr Peter Middleton and David Joyce , Lean application development realized the following improvements over traditional methods:

  • 37% reduction of lead time to deliver software to customers
  • 73% reduction in development time
  • 8X increase in product releases

Let us show you how we can improve your team’s agility and marketing performance.
