What is Kanban?

First used in manufacturing, kanban is a workflow management system based on visual cards on a centralized board.  Stages of the workflow process are represented as columns and cards represent work in process.  Cards move from left to right on the board showing their progress towards completion.

Where is Kanban used?

After gaining popularity in manufacturing, kanban next became popular in software development.  When you walked into a software development team's area you would be greeted by whiteboards covered in sticky notes.  Teams faithfully gathered around these boards each day to conduct stand-up meetings, and miniature status meetings, to communicate progress and plans for the day.

It wasn't long until teams began to look for digital solutions.
