About David Anderson:
David Anderson is an internationally recognized thought leader and pioneer of the Kanban Methodology. He’s the founder of the David J Anderson School of Management as well as the CEO of Mauvius Group Inc.
David is the author of seven books on Kanban. David co-created the Kanban Maturity Model, the Fit for Purpose Framework, and Enterprise Services Planning. His degree in electronics and computer science started him out in the gaming industry, where he then pivoted to the software industry as an acclaimed author, coach, speaker, and consultant. Over the last 25 years, David has worked at IBM, Sprint, Motorola, and Microsoft.
In the early 2000s, a group of agilists including LitheSpeed founder Sanjiv Augustine and David Anderson co-authored the Declaration of Interdependence and also co-founded the Agile Project Leadership Network. One of the key things on which David and Sanjiv connected is the passionate belief that organizations should always be networked, with a “thin center.” That is, a very small central unit in a completely distributed network. That federated mindset imbues all of David’s work.
