What is Kanban and Why is it Useful?
Kanban is a visual workflow management method that helps teams optimize their processes and increase efficiency. It involves creating a board with columns that represent different stages of the workflow, such as "To Do," "In Progress," and "Done." Tasks or items are represented by cards that move across the board as they progress through each stage of the workflow. Kanban boards provide a clear and visual overview of the workflow, making it easy for team members to understand the status of tasks, identify bottlenecks, and optimize their processes.
