Kanban is a visual overview of workflow, where you can gradually manage your process to improve productivity. A way for teams and organizations to visualize their work, identify and eliminate bottlenecks and achieve dramatic operational improvements.


What is Kanban?

Kanban is a visual project management framework. It is designed to optimize workflow efficiency by visualizing tasks on a Kanban board, which typically consists of columns representing different stages of the workflow and cards representing individual tasks.

The fundamental principle of Kanban is to limit work in progress (WIP), ensuring that teams focus on completing tasks before starting new ones, thereby reducing multitasking and improving overall productivity.

Kanban emphasizes continuous improvement and encourages teams to analyze their processes, identify bottlenecks, and make incremental changes to enhance workflow efficiency.

This flexible methodology is widely adopted in various industries beyond manufacturing, including software development, marketing, and healthcare, due to its simplicity and adaptability.
