Kanban actions when encountering a bottleneck.

What kind of actions should be considered to take care of a bottleneck?

- Are the people on the immediate upstream doing things right or rushing them?
- Do we need to add a buffer?
- Is this something temporary so doing nothing is the right thing to do?
- Is the root cause somewhere farther upstream?
- Do we change WIP?
- Do we reallocate human resources?
Note: this list is not exhaustive.
