Kanban Values and Principles

The original is at http://anderson.leankanban.com/blog/ and is best read there. Following list is maintained for my convenience.

Remember that kanban is aimed at process improvement and usually has a wider view than the team view (unless the organization is small).


  • Start with what you do now
  • Agree to pursue incremental, evolutionary change
  • Initially, respect current roles, responsibilities & job titles
  • Encourage acts of leadership at all levels of your organization


  • Visualize
  • Limit WIP
  • Manage Flow
  • Make Process Policies Explicit
  • Implement Feedback Loops
  • Improve Collaboratively
  • Evolve Experimentally (using models/scientific method)
