Fremont, CA : Agile methodologies have transformed software development and deployment methods. It has allowed companies to streamline the entire process of software development and improve the quality of deliverables. A combination of agile methodologies and the Kanban management method can work wonders in enhancing a company’s work environment. While agile provides the right mindset, Kanban offers a management method based on visualisation and work-in-progress (WAP) limits. The management method delivers a framework to execute the work, enabling continual improvement and reliable delivery at a sustainable pace. Kanban allows development teams to interact with the Kanban board, reflecting all the client’s requests through detailed paper tickets. The Kanban board displays the status of a ticket and all the other pertinent information that a team needs to address the issue.
Sharing the work with the entire team can help to improve the productivity of a company. Team members who possess the same set of skills and domain knowledge can shoulder the responsibility of accomplishing a task with excellent efficiency. An agile mindset combined with the Kanban management method can unite all the teams working on the same project. The Kanban Board provides multiple columns like to do, priority to do, ready, doing, and many other easy-to-use and understand features. It also allows companies to set WIP limits to each column, which helps the teams maintain a reasonable pace and ensure no backup in one column over another.
Many companies estimate their work timelines based on past experiences, leading to a risky affair as complexities are not measured correctly. The Kanban environment allows companies to track their metrics and review them monthly by offering accurate completion rates. Efficient tracking of work timelines can help immensely in internal reporting and managing the client’s expectations. The integration of agile and Kanban also helps to improve transparency in the processes of a company.
