Kanban is a method for visualizing the flow of work, with an emphasis on continuous delivery without overburdening the development team. Work items are visualized to give participants a view of progress and process, from start to finish.
Kanban which literally means signboard in Japanese, is a scheduling system for lean manufacturing and just-in-time manufacturing (JIT). Taiichi Ohno, an industrial engineer at Toyota, developed Kanban to improve manufacturing efficiency, in 1940s.
