The activities can be delayed in most of the times due to these unwanted waste types have been attended by resources. In such case how the management and operational staff need to control them? And what kind of education or training is required for them? The Lean Six Sigma practices of Waste types identification helps a lot to these questions.

Apart from considering the LSS lean for identifying waste type, the Agile Kanban also has been discussed in depth with the realistic issues of projects by mapping to the Kanban waste items.
