Why learn Lean Kanban?

 

As digital businesses shift away from large, one-off digital projects with defined finish lines, towards programmes of continuous improvement, the general practices of Kanban software development are helping digital teams to work in a more agile and iterative way.

Lean Kanban software development increases efficiencies in the software development process, reduces risk, eliminates bottlenecks, and gives teams 10% more time to ‘get stuff done’ versus Scrum practices.
