KANBAN is NOT an agile method

Personal experiences and opinions concerning “self-management” and “leading a team”

About the Book

"Iarnă's personal experience and perspective into Kanban is not only unique, but an adventure of sorts. Following the "Kanban" thread from its everyday practical Japanese origins into its current practical application is indeed a journey worth taking!"

A. Johnson (Communication Consultant)

"Iarnă gives the reader a lot of thought-provoking and inspirational insight into the many dimensions of a modern approach to Kanban - heartfelt, dedicated, and with a lot of personal experience. Read it - and benefit from a new approach to self-management!"

B. Köper (trainer and instructor for English and adult education)

About the Author


I wrote down a small amount of my experiences, opinions and thoughts in case they can help some of the readers to obtain a sort of understanding of “self-management” and/or “leading a team”. And "Thank you" to all of you who send me comments, opinions, corrections, etc. and help me to become better in whatever. I always try to become better, because I think that there is always something to learn… or respectively to improve…
