Abstract

Software development industry is growing rapidly and so are the time and budget constraints getting stringent. After Scrum, the widely adopted agile method, agile practitioners are now shifting towards Kanban due to its effective communication facilitation, transparency and limited work in progress traits. Since, the industry is in transition from scrum to Kanban therefore we don’t find many empirical studies yielding results of adopting Kanban. Therefore, in this study we aim to explore more on Kanban teams. Mainly, we aim to find the impact of Kanban team’s communication patterns on their iteration performance and quality. The findings revealed that the centralization communication patterns have negative impact on iteration performance and quality of a project. However, small world communication pattern has positive impact on iteration performance and quality of a project.
