Lean development has been used for decades in manufacturing industries, most notably in passenger cars and is today being used in various development and sustenance projects, including Software. Kanban is one of the most popular frameworks for development in a Lean Framework – focusing on improved lead time, removing bottlenecks, not overloading team members, cutting waste and streamlining work. It also uses some of the principles of Agile Manifesto. Kanban is widely preferred in support and services related projects.
