Publisher's Summary

"Kanban" is a Japanese term that can mean visual board. When applied in the context of Lean practices, Kanban is a visual tool for managing the flow of information or work items. It is flexible enough to be introduced to an existing process, whatever that process may be, and without having the need to replace the process, but it is very compatible with Agile methods.

In fact, it is being used in many industries such as manufacturing, R&D, supply chain, logistics management, and healthcare, to name a few. Kanban, however, help in the management of projects by visualizing workflow, limiting work in process, creating and improving the flow.

This audiobook introduces principles that have already revolutionized the manufacturing industry. By adopting seven Lean principles, people developing software learned how to create a more efficient process optimized for their work environment.

These principles help people to eliminate waste, amplify learning, and deliver as fast as possible, among others. Lean practices promote a variety of tools, and one popular tool is Kanban.

The book discusses:

  • What Kanban is
  • How it can help
  • Its benefits and how it should be implemented
  • How to improve the workspace workflow
  • What to do with the improvements gained

    "Wow what a book!..."

    This book has been so greatly helpful in my job. Recommended to me by a kanban instructor.Excellent follow up to my training because it focused on real life cases where kanban was applied. Thin and easy to read. Not a main course entree, but a lovely side dish.

    "5 out of 5"

    This is a new concept to me and I can't wait to use the principles set fourth in this book. My biggest take away was the board that is used to systemize the To Do's and to get things done quickly and efficiently. I will be looking into a digital board which the book talked about as well for it would be great for my field. Just as anything in life kanban is always in constant refinement.

    "useful book"

    Great, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).

    "Step by Step Guide"

    Great overview over Kanban methodology. If you are already familiar with agile management such as scrum, this short audiobook gives you some clear points. This book introduced me to the Kanban system and how it is able to contribute to a business system’s efficiency. Interesting insights. Author was able to lay out a solid foundation of its basic principles through specific examples and scenarios. A recommended tool for project managers!

    "Very good introduction to Kanban"

    The book covers the basics and attempts to provide guidance for the move the the new methodology. It is easy to read, the writing enthusiastic and interesting examples are littered throughout the book. It doesn't try to be the single source of all knowledge for Kanban, but offers up recommendations if more detailes are needed, which I personally find refreshing.

    If you are looking for a good introduction to the Kanban method, you have found the right book!

    "Great and awesome book..!!"

    I really liked this book. It is short, sweet, and to the point. It tells you all you need to know about Kanban. I also liked that the author included information on using with Kanban. This was the first I heard of that. Superficial, both at the Kanban modules.

    "I highly recommend this book."

    This book provides a great description of how Kanban can be used for software development. The book is an excellent resource that is presented in a manner that will allow a leader to use it as a resource over the years. Using guidance from the book, we've slowly modified our processes and have achieved a moderate level of success and are continuing to improve as time goes on. I highly recommend this book.
