What is Kanban?

April 25 2018

Kanban is a visual system for managing work as it moves through a process. Kanban visualizes both the process (the workflow) and the actual work passing through that process. The goal of Kanban is to identify potential bottlenecks in your process and fix them so work can flow through it cost-effectively at an optimal speed or throughput.

 

The 3 core practices of the Kanban method are:

1- Visualize your Workflow

2- Limit Work in Progress (WIP)

3- Manage Flow & Eliminate Wasted Resources

The Kanban Method is a process to gradually improve whatever you do – whether it is software development, IT/ Ops, Staffing, Recruitment, Marketing and Sales, Procurement etc. In fact, almost any business function can benefit from applying the principles of the Kanban Method.

Sounds simple, right?
