Flevy Management Insights: Kanban Board


A Kanban board is a visual tool used for workflow management and optimization. It is named after the Japanese word "kanban," which means "signboard" or "billboard." (For materials on the Lean concept of Kanban, go here.)

Typically, a Kanban board is a physical or digital board with columns, with each column indicating a particular workflow stage. The board is then filled with cards representing particular jobs or items being worked on. As tasks advance through the workflow, the cards are shifted from column to column.

The Kanban board is a flexible tool that can be used in a variety of settings, including Manufacturing, Software Development, and Project Management. It can help teams to visualize their work, identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and manage the flow of work more effectively.

By using a Kanban board, teams can enhance their collaboration, coordination, and communication, as well as more readily monitor progress and prioritize tasks. In addition, the Kanban board can provide significant information on the workflow's performance, which can be utilized to find areas for development and optimization.
