Kanban Boards are a popular Agile project management tool that leverage “cards” for individual tasks. Those cards can be moved across columns to represent the various stages in a process, allowing teams to visualize workflows and overall progress.
In its most basic form, a Kanban Board has three columns: to-do, in-progress, and done. You can add more columns to further represent various stages in your project depending on team needs and workflows. Whether you are using a basic three-column board, or you have many, the primary benefit of Kanban Boards goes beyond visual communication — it keeps teams accountable and on track in an asynchronous way throughout the course of a project.
Setting up a Kanban Board is now easier than ever thanks to the addition of Boards and Cards in Freehand. In any Freehand, you can quickly construct Boards and personalise them to your team's needs, or you may start with our pre-built template to get a head start.
From there, you can start constructing cards with unique project tasks by adding, removing, and renaming columns based on your team's and project's needs. Move the card into its relevant column as each job moves through your process stages to view status.
Now it’s time to bring everything you didn’t think you needed to know about Kanban Boards and Agile project management to your team’s processes.
