“The single greatest challenge facing managers in the developed countries of the world is to raise the productivity of knowledge and service workers. This challenge, which will dominate the management agenda for the next several decades, will ultimately determine the competitive performance of companies.
Even more important, it will determine the very fabric of society and the quality of life in every industrialized nation.”
- Peter Drucker
The Kanban method agendas and motivations address Peter Drucker's challenge perfectly:
The Sustainability Agenda is about finding a sustainable pace and improving focus.
The Service Orientation Agenda focuses on performance and customer satisfaction.
The Survivability Agenda is concerned with staying competitive and adaptive.
