Abstract (Document Summary)

The word "Kanban" is Japanese for "sign" or "billboard." In the 1940s, Toyota developed Kanban as a way of improving its manufacturing efficiency. Over time, the Kanban method has become an important tool for managing workflow and measuring outcomes. Essentially, you use visual organization to design a process that works for you. In addition to the manufacturing industry, Kanban boards are used in software development, marketing, human resources, and strategy and leadership teams, as well as for personal task management. The simplest Kanban board consists of three columns: to-do, in progress, and done. The key to Kanban is limiting the amount of work you have in progress so that you can focus on completing tasks, rather than letting them pile up in a failed attempt to multitask. Although you can create a Kanban board with a whiteboard and colored sticky notes, KanbanFlow ( is a web application that allows you to digitize this method quickly and easily.
