The KANBAN Board

The KANBAN Board is a yet another Task Board tool. There are many out there but we believe that this does it a little bit different. The intention has been to try and mimic a real white board as much as possible, where you move PostIt notes around to display progress. In this tool we also incorporate burndown charts together with inflow and outflow diagrams. In fact we have also added resource management so that the burndown chart reflects the actual real world situation as much as possible.
