Kanban Pull Principle

A team only picks up the next piece of work from the previous stage when they have available capacity—they've completed other work, and their WIP won't exceed.

Notes

  • Pull principle is a mechanism for controlling product development workflow.
  • The upstream process isn't allowed to take more work unless it has capacity.
  • A team only picks up the next piece of work from the previous stage when they have available capacity—they've completed other work, and their WIP won't exceed.
  • The opposite is the push principle, in which team members finish their work and push along into the next processing step, ignoring capacity and WIP.
