Kanban Elevator Pitch – Help Craft It

Kanban is a way to incrementally and continually improve your approach to meeting your goals, by understanding the situation clearly, identifying the real challenges and testing out your chosen options for resolving those challenges.” – John Stevenson

Here is a great starting point by John Stevenson.

I’d like to open up the comments to help craft the perfect kanban elevator pitch.

What would you say?

      1. Find a slot.
      2. Pick a card.
      3. Get it done!
      …Next! (ding)

      Find a slot first, then pick a card!

      I now know that’s more accurate. I participated in Agile Coach Camp USA 2011 #accus including Games Day. Wonderful experience! While there, I played a round of the Kanban game, courtesy of @LeanKitKanban Chris Hefler and Jon Terry @leankitjon who both provided inspirational coaching throughout the process.

      Thanks for the epiphany, guys! I love to learn!
