Kanban Methodology in Product Management

Kanban is a lean method to manage and improve work across human systems. This approach aims to manage work by balancing demands with available capacity and by improving the handling of system-level bottlenecks. Work items are visualized to give participants a view of progress and process, from start to finish—usually via a Kanban board.


At Spotify, the engineering teams use Kanban to manage their software development process. This allows them to visualize their work, limit work in progress, and maximize efficiency by focusing on continuous delivery.
