Why is it that organizations using Agile methods such as Scrum and SAFe struggle with and suffer anxiety over dependency management, while it is largely a non-issue for organizations using the Kanban Method?
Reservation systems have been observed in Kanban implementations since 2008. They are used immediately upstream of a delivery kanban system, to indicate the desired start date of the request for work (a work item).
Over the past 15 years, I have observed that managing dependencies has been a constant source of anxiety and a huge challenge for organizations adopting Agile methods. Meanwhile, dependency management has largely been a non-issue for organizations using the Kanban Method.
