We are very happy to announce our fourth key note speaker, Steve Medland. Steve is an expert on Toyota Kata in manufacturing. He will give his key note on the two core routines or Kata – the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata – that Toyota uses to embed continuous improvement, adaptiveness, and innovation into their culture.
After this keynote Hakan Forss will show us how to combine the power of the Kanban Method and Toyota Kata.
A great combination we are proud to have at our conference!

The Lean Kanban Netherlands 2012 program is announced! And we are very proud of the program we have been able to put together. The program is designed to provide a unique and invaluable insight into the world of Lean and Kanban, including the topics portfolio management, ITops, Toyota kata, Lean management, the psychology behind Kanban, change management, TOC and many many more. The line up at LKNL12 includes some exceptional minds who create improvement by introducing new ways of working (together).
We have speakers from the Benelux area, but also from other parts of Europe and even the US and Australia! Besides our four outstanding keynote speakers, we invited Brickell Key Award winners Jim Benson and David Joyce to give us a look inside their minds.
Take a look at our program and prepare to be amazed!
We are very happy to announce Jim Benson, godfather of personal kanban, as one of our invited speakers!
Jim Benson’s career has included psychology, urban planning, government technology planning, software development, and corporate change management. During his 20 years of experience, he has acquired an appreciation for how people, teams, and organizations process information, set goals, and achieve their objectives. A fundamental part of this appreciation involves the identification of opportunities for waste reduction and innovation in knowledge work.
