What is Kanban

People often have a falsely simplistic view of Kanban as just a board with task cards and limitations. In reality, it is a powerful mechanism for the development of an effective value delivery process within an organization. This method is actively developed and improved all over the world, as evidenced by the growth from 15% to 43% in the share of Agile and Scrum teams using Kanban.
