Application

nspired by the Toyota Production System, Kanban is a framework usually used in the process of agile project management, similar to SCRUM. The method calls for instant communication of capacity and total transparency of tasks. Kanban methodology is widely employed in manufacturing, business, entertainment and marketing industries. Thus, a recent study by Aprimo and AgileSherpas revealed that 53% of marketers said that "faster time to get things released" and the "ability to change gears quickly and effectively" were two of the top four benefits of applying Agile methods to their job.

The Kanban basics come down to six main principles: visualizing work, limiting works in progress, concentrating on flow, making processes direct, improving continuously and implementing feedback loops.

According to eMarketer, applying agile methodology to your workflow is necessary if your team is:

  • drowning in work
  • suffering from fire-drill fatigue
  • struggling with silos and misalignment
  • dealing with morale or engagement challenges
  • delivering late or incorrectly
