KANBAN is a method for developing software products and processes with an emphasis on just-in-time delivery while not overloading the software developers. The process, from definition of a task to its delivery to the customer, is displayed for participants to see and developers pull work from a queue; ALL shown on a KANBAN board.

The board is usually divided into three sections: "awaiting production", "work in progress" and "completed work in progress". Employees move cards to the section on the board that coincides with the receptacle it represents. The most popular example of a KANBAN boards is agile or lean software development consisting of: Backlog, Ready, Coding, Testing, Approval and Done columns. It is also a common practice to name columns in a different way, for example: Next, In Development, Done, Customer Acceptance, Live.
Having worked in both the agile and waterfall worlds, keen to get more working experience using this system over the coming months.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
