Kanban Board

The Kanban framework use a Kanban board which is essentially a board divided into columns that show every flow of the production. The board usually contains at least 3 columns, To Do, In Progress, and Done (columns like code review or testing can be added to suit the business needs). As the development continues, the information on the board changes and when new tasks arise, a new Kanban card is created and added in the To Do column. It enables transparency in tracking the work left, in progress and done and prevents tasks from being ignored or forgotten.

Kanban Card

Every item on a Kanban Board is called a Kanban Card. Each card gives a brief idea on the particular task, responsibility and the estimated time of completion. Having a visual on the process allows tracking the work better. The Team is involved only on the item that is currently in progress and will move to the next item only when the former one is completed. It gives a unique opportunity to foresee challenges and faster capture roadblocks as well as understanding the dependencies of item more clearly.
