In 2015, in a blog post called Kanban Cadences , David Anderson laid out a set of 7 Kanban cadences or meetings that provide comprehensive opportunities for feedback, planning, and review in an enterprise. These are based on our own experience using Kanban for our own product development as well as that of many of our customers who have implemented this critical cadence.
