Kanban is the next generation of Agile methods. It has been picking up momentum as many people have become disenchanted with either the difficulty of starting Scrum or have been unable to overcome challenges while using Scrum. Kanban is based on Lean Product Development flow and provides insights into how to solve many software development challenges while being inclusive of management. It also is designed to be able to implemented at a pace of the development organization’s choosing – making it much more flexible in many areas where starting with a Scrum implementation would be difficult.
