Lean Kanban

Kanban is an effective just-in-time “pull” system for cutting costs, improving quality and getting products, services and/or software to market quicker.

Originating from Lean Manufacturing, Kanban enables companies to eliminate waste (in the form of time, money and resources) and optimise their development or production processes by identifying the most efficient workflow sequences and ensuring that the correct work is completed at the right time.

The Kanban method primarily involves making incremental changes that transform existing business processes into more efficient and timely work streams. Kanban achieves this by removing bottlenecks in production, improving lead time, helping to establish an optimal workload for teams, improving organisational alignment, and generally ensuring consistent high performance in the shortest amount of time.
