About the Obeya Association

The Obeya Association is a community (or “Association”) where Obeya knowledge is developed and experiences are shared. Our platform accommodates a home for Obeya practitioners worldwide.

We aim to provide all practitioners with the means necessary to work with Obeya effectively. The ultimate aim is to contribute to sustainable and inclusive decision making, benefitting a world in which organizations positively contribute to their surroundings.

We consolidate experiences and use cases brought to us by our worldwide network of Obeya Associates, into this body of knowledge on effective Obeya practice.

Then we return this information back into the network.

Through this constant cycle we create a dynamic Obeya framework that provides a foundation to work with Obeya.
