Kanban: An Agile Methodology for the Operational Side of Business

Kanban had its origin in lean production systems and just-in-time manufacturing, the most notable implementation being the Toyota Production System.  But in the last decade, the interest in Kanban has spread into many other business arenas outside of manufacturing.  For some time, it has been a primary methodology used in the ITIL environment and it has also found its way into the world of software. 

In this presentation we will explore Kanban and its relevance to the Agile community and what it can do for organizations.  In this exploration we will look at implementing Kanban using the five core properties that have been present in every successful Kanban implementation.
