Please, tell us what your work is about?
Project management of e-commerce and web development.
What kind of processes do you manage using Kanban Tool?
Single tasks and projects to be completed by different members of our e-commerce and web development team.
Could you describe your workflow?
We assign tasks or projects for each other in a backlog, and then I – as the team leader – decide which tasks/projects are most important and move these into a “to-do” lane. And then the assignee move the card into “doing” and then “done” after completion. It’s very simple, but it works for us as we have a lot of small tasks.
What does your board structure look like?
The board is divided into 5 swimlanes, each one representing its own, overall work area. These are divided into Backlog, To do, Doing and Done. Again: Very simple, but effective.
Have you made any adjustments to improve your performance?
Not many – the standard board template was fine. We just added swimlanes and re-named the columns/stages.
