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.
