Publisher's Summary

"Kanban" is a Japanese term that can mean visual board. When applied in the context of Lean practices, Kanban is a visual tool for managing the flow of information or work items. It is flexible enough to be introduced to an existing process, whatever that process may be, and without having the need to replace the process, but it is very compatible with Agile methods.
In fact, it is being used in many industries such as manufacturing, R&D, supply chain, logistics management, and healthcare, to name a few. Kanban, however, help in the management of projects by visualizing workflow, limiting work in process, creating and improving the flow.
This audiobook introduces principles that have already revolutionized the manufacturing industry. By adopting seven Lean principles, people developing software learned how to create a more efficient process optimized for their work environment.
These principles help people to eliminate waste, amplify learning, and deliver as fast as possible, among others. Lean practices promote a variety of tools, and one popular tool is Kanban.
The book discusses:

What Kanban is
How it can help
Its benefits and how it should be implemented
How to improve the workspace workflow
What to do with the improvements gained

Nice book

The book provides both a good introduction to KANBAN as a tool for continuous improvement and a good explanation about how to use it in software development projects. I believe the book could be shorter. Highly recommended!!

Wow what a book!...

This book has been so greatly helpful in my job. Recommended to me by a kanban instructor.Excellent follow up to my training because it focused on real life cases where kanban was applied. Thin and easy to read. Not a main course entree, but a lovely side dish.
