Rather than expect a team of developers to release together, kanban lets finished work get out to customers as soon as it’s ready.

Taiichi Ohno of Japan helped Toyota dominate the U.S. automobile industry through the introduction of several improvements to manufacturing processes. His system of processes became known as the Toyota Production System, or TPS.

In the early 2000s, software development teams began adopting some of the practices of TPS for use in producing software. The primary practice usually associated with TPS on software teams is the use of a Kanban board.

Kanban development operates under the assumption that there is more work to be done than can be forecasted and assigned predictably. Changes in market demand and business needs on a software project necessitate adaptability.
