You might also want to take a look at my recent blog post: http://leanadaptivemanagement.wordpress.com/2012/05/15/lean-programme-transformation/
In the blog post I'm exploring how to transform a large programme based on a traditional stage gate process towards a more lean approach base on the ideas of Lean Product Development inspired by the work of Alan Ward and Michael Kennedy.
Great!Added to readability!

To a certain extent a swim lane does serve that purpose for many teams.
Each time you open a swimlane it is actually a permission to explore and deliver.
Exactly. In my country so many people are enlightened with Business Model Canvas, but is really a mess to derive a working plan from it. I'm trying to smooth the transition from the BMC to an agile team, using Kanban, of course.Best RegardsAgustin
