What is the Kanban board template?

The Kanban project methodology is a visual system for managing and improving workflow. It originally utilized physical cards, but modern Kanban systems use robust digital cards that can be easily dragged and dropped. Kanban boards allow you to understand a workstream at a glance. No matter how complex the project is, you’ll be able to see what’s in progress and what’s already been done. There’s also a place for storing backlogged tasks that need to be completed. This template will help you implement the Kanban methodology in an organized way.
