Free Digital Download

Upstream Kanban isn’t so much about “managing flow,” as seen with downstream, Delivery Kanban systems. Instead, it is about marshaling options–having enough choices at the right time, without overburdening the system and the workers who generate those options.


Discover the mechanisms of Upstream Kanban and Customer Kanban for better enterprise business agility.
