Agile and Lean Influences - Where did Kanban, Scrum, Scrumban and Lean Startup come from?
The following diagram summarizes in a very quick and visual way where Kanban, Scrum and Lean Startup got their inspiration. It is not just history; it also shows the dual nature of Kanban, the Agile and Lean influences that make it so powerful, and also how Scrum shares some Lean history.
Mr. Yasunobu Kawaguchi created the original diagram, and we have updated it with contributions from Agustin Villena and Joseph Hurtado. In particular we added Scrumban to the list, as well as the dates when critical books about a technique or methodology were released to the public. We hope this diagram makes your Agile and Lean learning much more rewarding. Kanban stands in the shoulders of giants.
At the AgileLion Institute we are also making our own contributions to Kanban: Open Kanban, and Kanban Ace. Kanban Ace is the first Open Kanban method, it combines the best of Agile with the power of Lean. If you are interested in our know-how we have a solid selection Kanban Ace classes worldwide.
