What is Kanban?
Kanban is an agile methodology for managing your workflows with an emphasis on continuous delivery while limiting the amount of work in progress, making your teams more productive.
Your tasks and projects are visually arranged in the form of Lists and Cards so that each member of the team knows what’s required to be done at any given point of time.
Key Components of Kanban
Kanban lets you visually manage your workflow using 3 key elements.
- Boards - This is where collaboration actually begins. A Kanban board primarily represents a plan or a project. All your individual tasks are essentially organized here. From planning the launch of your next big product to keeping a track of all the bugs in your software, you could do it all here.
- Lists - Lists represent the important milestones in your workflow. You can create any number of lists to represent the various points across your workflow that needs a check. Lists also act as placeholders for Cards, that move across these lists until a task meets its end goal.
- Cards - Cards essentially represent an action or an idea that needs your attention. It could be anything from "clean your desk" to "close the agreement with Tesla". The position of a card across lists on a Kanban board represents the current status of that item. You can simply drag and drop a card from one list to another, to represent the progress of that particular item in your workflow.
For example, a web development firm could use Kanban to keep a track of how bugs reported by users are investigated and addressed.
In the above image, each card is representing a task and is placed accordingly in a list that represents its current status. As and when the status of a task changes, it can be dragged and dropped to other lists on the board, finally leading to the last list, that marks the completion of that task.
