Beginner’s guide to Kanban

date icon

This white paper presents an in-depth look at the Kanban project management methodology, a lean system that strives to maximize efficiency and eliminate waste in the process. Originating from Toyota’s production system in 1953, Kanban is based on the principle of only restocking an item once it runs out, effectively matching production to customer demand.

In a project management setting, each task is visually mapped out like parts on a Toyota assembly line, and team members work on their specific tasks and pass them on to the next phase. This not only promotes a status-based view of project progression but also encourages pull production over push production, ensuring no overload of work.

This paper also explores the benefits of using Kanban boards, such as increased productivity and efficiency, reduced bottlenecking, and effective utilization of resources. Furthermore, it acknowledges that Kanban might not be suitable for every team or project type, detailing specific scenarios where its implementation proves most beneficial.
