-- Hilll Glazer, author of High Performance OrganizationsI found the Kanban Maturity Model extremely valuable to set the right expectations for my clients. It gives an organisation's management a perspective and high-level guidance on the way forward. As an experienced Kanban coach leading large-scale improvement initiatives, I value the model and its guidance for my day-to-day work on all levels. It is far more powerful than ticking of boxes. The KMM helps to look for evidence of value brought to the organisation. It is a must-read for every Kanban coach or agile practitioner.--Peter Kerschbaumer, Kanban Coaching Professional and Enterprise Services PlanningKMM is a map that helps us to locate where we are and define our path toward better business results.--Aitor Eguren, General Manager, Soraluze Makina Bereziak, S.L.L.
