About the BookKanban from the Inside: Understand the Kanban Method, Connect it to What You Already Know, Introduce it with Impact
by Mike Burrows
"I set myself the task of describing the 'humane, start with what you do now approach to change' not as a productivity tool, but as a management method built around a strong framework of values—a way to help organizations work better for their people, their customers, and other stakeholders."
- Mike Burrows, author
Kanban from the Inside takes a distinctive approach to the Kanban Method — using a system of nine values to explain what it is, to give insight into how its practitioners think, and to offer practical advice on how to apply it. Readers new to Kanban will understand why and how it works, while those with experience will appreciate its fresh perspective and the connections it makes with a range of related models.
Part I draws on real-world experience to explain the Kanban Method through nine values: transparency, balance, collaboration, customer focus, flow, leadership, understanding, agreement, and respect. It also introduces Kanban's three Agendas and the Kanban Lens.
Part II describes other models useful to understanding and applying the Kanban Method more effectively. It is a tour through related bodies of knowledge, including Systems Thinking, Lean, Agile, and Theory of Constraints.
Part III is a step-by-step implementation guide that brings up to date the Systems Thinking Approach to Introducing Kanban (STATIK). It offers practical ways to capture and address in your Kanban implementation the needs of your organization, your colleagues, and your customers.
"This book is the new standard that I will recommend to anyone getting started with Kanban."
—Wolfgang Wiedenroth, Kanban Trainer/Coach, it-agile
"It is not focused just on the mechanics of the kanban board; rather it
explains everything you need around it to keep a Kanban initiative
—Klaus Leopold, Kanban Trainer/Coach, LEANability
"This gave me a deeper understanding of familiar concepts and introduced
concepts new to me."
—Kevin Murray, Delivery Director, Valtech UK

Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate up to six hours of reading, which converts to up to 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
