Big projects need an organization solution that presents multiple phases at a glance. With the Kanban method, Post-it® Super Sticky Dry Erase Surface and Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, you can easily organize tasks, delegate them to team members and track progress in one easy-to-understand system.
When your team is tackling a complex project — one with multiple stages, deliverables and stakeholders, for example — you need a solution that tracks all the moving parts and empowers team members to do their best work. The Kanban, or three bin, method organizes workflow to make it easier to monitor a project's progress.
Kanban was originally invented as part of the famous Toyota Production System in 1959. The method worked so well that just three years later, the company began shifting its entire production over to this way of working.
With Kanban, teams can consolidate information about a company's existing projects and related activities. This allows them to visualize project phases and track each team member's progress at a glance. And when progress is visible and trackable, it's much easier for teams to maintain momentum and keep working toward a common goal.
In the Kanban system, tasks are grouped in one of three categories — to do, in-process or done — based on their completion status. By presenting tasks in context, Kanban enables teams to optimize the flow of their work quickly and efficiently. Below are the steps to build a Kanban board for your team projects.
When your team has the right tools, you can find solutions to any challenge. Use the Kanban approach to ignite your team's shared drive for achieving remarkable results — together.
