Kanban applied to Education is a great way to improve the way to learn, teach and collaborate. We partnered with L-EAF: Learning – Educational Agility Framework by offering both our software and Kanban expertise. We provide the online framework to help educational systems in continuously improving the way to learn.

Teachers, students and parents collaborate online through Kanban cards to ensure transparency and clarity on the curriculum. Districts institutions and faculties can streamline their processes by visualizing and simplifying their way of working.

The world of education has been struggling to deliver to its customers, [aka students, classroom educators, school managers and boards], a coherent and visible set of principles, practices and heuristics that will allow the student and their local educational delivery system to confront complexity and address the chaos that attends the learning journey.

At present organizations, private and government, are spending approx 25B/year to fund experiments in learning the lean-agile mindset and ways of working with the objective of creating adaptive systems to solve complex problems given a digital economy.

The L-EAF.org, Learning – Educational Agile Framework, intends to bring this way of working from the boardroom to the classroom.


Frameworks are defined by their values and are manifested through their principles. L-EAF.org reflected on the 4 pillars of a student center educational system;

  1. Student Agility
  2. Teaching Agility
  3. Lean-Agile Leaders
  4. Institutional/Enterprise Agility

Which led us to instill the values of Collaboration

  • Transparency
  • Integrity
  • Adaptability
  • Openness to possibilities

The Learning – Educational Agile Framework was designed by looking across the multitude of Agile Frameworks and Methodologies to find the common patterns used by agile organizations to improve their process of delivering value and we found the 6 (six) which are common:

  • Refinement – learning more about your challenge over time
  • Planning – the path that will be followed to address the challenge, until something new is learned
  • Identification/Management – of Risks to the Plan
  • Collaboration – how, as a team, we will work together to deliver value towards a shared and common goal
  • Demonstration/Feedback – a way to show and look at what has been completed with the intent of identifying ways to improve on the value created
  • Reflection – a way to look at a process with the intention of identifying 1 small improvement which will enhance FLOW.

The activities are the common teaming practices that help to move knowledge to understanding over time.

L-EAF.org is designed to support the entire educational enterprise while maintaining a focus on growing student-centered learning experiences that provide students with the space to learn, practice, and become proficient in the executive functioning skills the workforce will need.

When married with our system of transformation, a micro-immersive coaching system which supports the practitioner while on the journey of learning knowledge and synthesizing it to understanding.



LearningFLOW: allows teachers to tap into the benefits of agility and system thinking. Using industry proven techniques, this learning workflow system helps educators to move from theory to practice is, as little as 15 minutes a day. Teached create cards that capture shared learning objectives and support students as they create their own cards which are pilled through the system. This technique provides a framework in which educators and students practice the 6 agile practices for getting work done; refinement, planning, risk management, collaboration, demonstration and reflection.

LearningKATA: practitioners complete a journey to harness the benefits of Agile problem solving by breaking problems down in a specific problem solving pattern. The LearningKATA uses a repeatable routine for moving from the current state to a future state as the means of delivering valuable educational outcomes. The system trains leaders in approaches for moving from strategy to tactics.
