More about Kanban

Kanban is a method for managing knowledge work with an emphasis on just-in-time delivery while not overloading the team members. In this approach, the process, from definition of a task to its delivery to the customer, is displayed for participants to see. Team members pull work from a queue.

In the most advanced Kanban driven organizations, multiple Kanbans are used for different purposes. However, the most common use applies to the implementation and release of software.

With Kanban your team will be able to:

  • Coordinate work, even though the tasks keep changing
  • Ensure constant delivery of value
  • Optimize how value is created
  • Increase the flexibility of the team

Kanban is ideal for teams who deliver continuous services to the customers (like operations, service desks, etc.), or project teams who already have a high agile maturity level.
