Kanban Boards are the simplest and most effective way to manage your project flow.

I first saw a kanbanboard 15 years ago when a friend used it to manage his personal projects. It was a simple 3-column view of all the things he was planning or doing. I returned home that evening and traced two lines on my whiteboard, dividing the board into three sections: done, to-do, and done. It was easy to keep track and plan my day accordingly.
It wasn’t too late that I put this idea to use. I modified the board to meet my work requirements and added a few columns. I then created one for my entire team, so everyone could work together. We used small sticky notes to help us get through our tasks.

What is a Kanban board?
Kanban is Japanese for “sign” or “billboard”. Toyota popularized the system.
Kanban boards are a system for organizing tasks and helping you visualize the flow from one stage of work to another. It allows you to see work units that have been completed but are still being worked on. This system uses a simple board-and-card system that allows the entire team to see both the larger picture and the individual tasks that are needed.
How to set up a Kanban board
Almost every team at Kissflow,Aimarketing, sales, customer support, and of course, engineering, uses kanban boards because of their flexible nature. This is one of the main reasons we used the Kanban framework to build our project management tool. You must be able to set up kanban boards correctly and when to use them.
First, design the board and map the processes. Think about the stages or phases that you could divide your project into, from ideation to completion. Each stage adds value. The simplest board has three phases, but it can be extended to more depending on the project.
Although it is a simple tool, it will not take long to complicate this. Only add information that is absolutely necessary. Limit the number of work units per column. This is known as WIP constraints. This can make it difficult to keep up with your tasks if it becomes too large. The size of the WIP constraint will depend on the capacity of your team. It should be equal to the number required to complete that task. It is important to ensure that the work does not move to the next column until there is enough space.
This rule is only broken when I am in the planning/ideation phase. I often add a buffer stage next to it where I filter and temporarily store some tasks.
Configuring the kanban board is almost complete. Last but not least, you must communicate the rules of your Kanban. Establish priorities. I use a mix of FIFO and fixed date. This allows some work units to jump the queue. Unanticipated scope changes may arise that require immediate attention.
Pro tip: Kanban boards are always in process. You should be open to making changes to your board at any time.
Kanban boards are a great way to manage project flow
Kanban boards can help with many project management problems. They are used to manage the project’s flow across stages and individuals.
The first column acts as a list of to-dos. Each time a member of the team has an idea, they make a note in the first column. The buffer stage is where we filter and screen proposals based on priority, budget and resources.
A master board is also useful for keeping track of all projects, while the individual boards are used for each project. The second board is more detailed and comprehensive, and includes the sub-tasks.
