How Lean & Agile Make Yard Work a Breeze - GoLeanSixSigma.com

So what does yard work have to do with Lean or Agile? They both benefit from something called a Kanban Board. Kanban is Japanese for “signboard” which was originally developed as a way to regulate production at Toyota. You’re probably thinking, “Mixing yard work with software.
