The Sprint is an iteration of work, typically 1 month or less in duration, where a potentially releasable product increment is produced. Sprints have consistent durations throughout a development effort. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. The Sprint contains several other events such as Sprint Planning, Daily Scrums, the Sprint Review and the Sprint Retrospective, in addition to the development work.

Kanban is a task management technique that sorts work to be completed according to progressive categories. It is suitable for tasks that can be broken down into small deliverables. Tasks managed by the Kanban technique are visualized on a Kanban Board.
All requirements are important, but they are prioritized to deliver the greatest and most immediate business benefits early. Developers will initially try to deliver all the Must have, Should have and Could have requirements but the Should and Could requirements will be the first to be removed if the delivery timescale looks threatened.
Some managers spend too much time finding other team members to blame in order not to put themselves on the line. Blaming someone else might sound great to many but they will end up with no one else to blame except themselves because by blaming others, you give up your power to grow and change.
There are multiple communication methods, which should placed in the following groups: Active Communication (push), Passive Communication (pull) and Interactive Communication.
When planning communications management, the project manager should consider the number of potential communications channels/paths as an indicator of the complexity of project communications.
You have probably read or heard of the magic formula “7% of communication is transmitted by words, 38% by tone of voice and 55% by body language!”, described as a universal rule of communication. Is this really so?
Standardized Work (SW) is a document that precisely outlines the description of each step required to complete a certain task. The document also captures the cycle time for each task, minimum level of inventory required as well as the classification of each task step as "value added" or "non value added". A SW document describes the most efficient way to process a certain task at any given point in time, and forms the baseline for process improvement.
An Information Radiator is a publicly posted display that shows people walking by information they care about without having to ask anyone a question. Typically information radiators are big, very easy to see, and change often enough to be worth revisiting. Online files and Web pages generally do not make good information radiators, because an information radiator needs to be visible without significant effort on the part of the viewer.
