Kanban is another widely followed agile practice derived from manufacturing industries. The successful adoption of this framework requires real-time communication and transparency at work. In Kanban, the work items/requirements are usually presented in a Kanban board with ‘To Do, Doing, Done’ list. At any time, when the developer is ready, he can pull backlogs from the to-do list and start working on it.
The Kanban team will have
- Product Owner
- Project Manager
- Automation Engineers
The team will have a fewer planning meeting compared to Scrum. Hence, it requires the members of the team to be reasonably flexible and communicate closely. The virtual Kanban board allows team members to track the work in progress for each item and associated details such as who is responsible for that task, job description and a timeline. It’s best suited for small teams that work solely based on priority and not at fixed timely releases.
