This is Kanban the process change management process:

5 core properties:

  1. Visualize Workflow
  2. Limit work-in-progress
  3. Measure & Manage Flow
  4. Make Process Policies Explicit
  5. Use Models to Recognize Improvement Opportunities

The use of kanban to facilitate a pull system is not the same as the Kanban process change management process. But because the two first steps in the process change management process are Visualize Workflow and Limit work-in-progress it is very easy too confuse the two different uses of the word kanban.

kanban, the pull system != Kanban, the process change management process
