Kanban is a software development methodology that was created by David Anderson at the Toyota company in Japan. Kanban focuses on managing workflow and visibility throughout the steps of an application's life cycle. The main difference between Kanban and other software development methodologies like agile development or scrum is that Kanban does not use sprints, which are time-boxed periods during which all team members focus exclusively on completing work for one product backlog item. Instead of working continuously on an item, Kanban encourages users to move items from column to column when they have completed steps in their workflow process.
