The Kanban method is used in project management to visualize the overall workflow and impose work in progress limits for better work optimization. This is achieved through a board where tasks (represented through cards) move from left to right into different stages (columns) of a project. Kanban’s primary purpose is to foster continuous, incremental and evolutionary change with minimal resistance as possible.


While the method originated in the manufacturing industry, in recent years, IT teams have been commonly using this method to schedule and monitor their work. Gradually, other industries such as web design, law, or digital marketing have been picking it up and adding this system to their daily project management routine.

One common reason why it’s one of the most popular methods is due to its visual impact. Kanban has thus been implemented in full-fledged project management and task management software– and more recently, in quoting and invoicing software.

Truthfully, anyone can implement the Kanban method into how they manage their work. To get you started, have a look at the following resources:
