Kanban

The Kanban Method for application to IT and software development was formulated by David Anderson in 2010 as an approach to incremental, evolutionary process and systems change for organizations. It uses a work-in-progress limited pull system as the core mechanism to expose system operation (or process) problems and stimulate collaboration to continuously improve the system. Visualisation is an important aspect of Kanban as it allows to understand the work and the workflow. Although Scrum is still the most popular methodology, Kanban adoption within organizations is growing at a fast rate.

Core Kanban practices are:
