Seeking Nirvana – Predictability in a Complex World


As Simon Wardley says: “predictability is a measure of how accurately we can anticipate something” In life and in business, human beings struggle to deal with uncertainty. When we ask people why they engage in agile transformations, change programmes, digital initiatives, scaling projects, and things like that, they will often say that they want things like faster delivery times, cheaper development, better products, higher quality or, just, more benefits. The truth is that what they often really want is to be able to trust the work and for it to be predictable. Faster, cheaper, better, higher, richer are all important, but predictability is the building block that enables the others.

Inspired by the ground-breaking work by Daniel Vacanti, this session explores the different steps that allow us to build a predictable system in complex and uncertain environments. Since Jose Casal introduced this workshop to Actineo’s Kanban training courses and workshops, participants consistently highlight it as the outstanding jaw-dropping takeaway from the class. So, health warning, if you have a fragile facial bone structure, please DO NOT attend the workshop. Otherwise, don’t miss out on this session.

The Nirvana of predictability awaits you.
