Choose Your Kanban Board Type: Simple or Project
A simple Kanban board diagram is perfect for smaller projects or to keep your "to-do" list in order.
Kanban board works very simply. Each task is given a card, and as progress is made, the card is moved across the board to the right. It's easy to see at a glance where tasks are in the process.
In the past, many proponents of Lean and Agile methodology used sticky notes on white boards for this purpose. SmartDraw is just as quick and easy, but with the added benefit of having an electronic record.
