Derived from the Toyota Production System, Kanban was further developed for use in IT. However, this method is just as suitable for use in other areas where tasks are always processed with the same sequence, comparable to a production.
The Kanban method consists of a set of proven approaches and practices that are scalable from individuals and teams to the enterprise. The method aims to strike a balance between customer requirements and business capabilities. Companies where this balance is disturbed typically experience overworked and unproductive employees, poor quality, unpredictable results, late deliveries, no time for innovation and missed opportunities.
The Kanban Method helps companies to understand and visualise their work system in order to identify unbalanced processes, continuously improve them, conserve resources and consistently achieve effective results.
