Kanban is an alternative path to agility. The most common misconception about Kanban deals with oversimplification around it – “task board with limits”. In fact, this is a powerful mechanism for constructing your process of delivering value to the client. In addition, the method is actively developing and evolving – a proof of the fact, the growth of Agile / Scrum teams that use Kanban from 15% to 43% (according to the latest report State of Scrum Report 2015).
