Traditional project management are used in most of the corporations in the world to achieve the required result, but over the years many other systems were developed in place of traditional ones to increase the productivity and also experiment with the projects in order to achieve the desired result, one of them is AGILE and it is one of the successful systems in the world especially in service based companies and also many other lesser known systems like KANBAN is also available to manage the projects and also plan it with the best mechanisms to develop and make the project more productive and successful with also increased participation of the stakeholders in the team. In this article, we will see how KANBAN is different from other systems and how it can be used to increase the productivity of the team by its application. In the last section of the article, I am referring to my professional experience as a Scrum Master while working on a project in a multinational company using the Agile methodology.
