We are convinced that Kanban is the next generation of Agile.  Kanban has the following advantages over first generation methods:

  • The ability to do agile when teams are difficult to form due to certain people being in very high demand
  • The ability to control your rate of transition
  • If your teams are overwhelmed with work, the ability to determine what the root cause of the overwork is
  • Getting more insights into the principles of software development
  • Much faster learning by the team once adopted

As with all methods, however, those new to it can use some assistance.  We've set up the Kanban Clinic to help.

While much of the software world recognizes the need to transition to agile methods, it is more difficult in some places than others. This is especially true when critical resources are constrained or true teams do not exist because people are on multiple projects at the same time.

When teams decide to “go Agile” they invariably decide between Scrum or the Kanban Method. This is often because both Scrum and the Kanban Method provide a straightforward approach to get started. However, our experience has shown us that this leaves several options off the table.
