The core Kanban practices

As we have seen, Kanban uses six fundamental practices to achieve improved agility. These practices should be applied, reviewed, and continuously improved.

  1. Visualize
  2. Limit work-in-progress
  3. Manage flow
  4. Make policies explicit
  5. Implement feedback loops
  6. Improve collaboratively and evolve experimentally

You should understand and focus on your customers’ needs and expectations and design a Kanban system that represents how your team is working to manage the work and let people self-organize around it. The Kanban system will be providing continuous feedback and signals that can be used to improve your delivery capability.
