The general idea in Agile project management is to limit the number of things you work on at the same time. In Scrum, you limit it by setting a fixed time frame (sprint) for a work package. In Kanban, you directly limit the number of tasks or projects worked on. This reduces overhead and automatically will lead to more complete tasks. If you can focus on but a few tasks and bring them to a finish, they are no longer dragged along half-finished without any value.
