Migrating to an Electronic Kanban Board (from a Physical Board)
If you have been using a physical Kanban board (or other forms of visual task boards) in your team, you already understand the benefits of Kanban and visual management of projects and operations! However, physical boards can be limiting, especially for distributed teams, or mature teams with strong focus on metrics, or even teams that are new and need an easy way to redesign and reorganize their Kanban boards so that they can make changes to their processes as needed. At the same time, moving to an electronic board can lead to a need to adapt your current practices and invest in other technology so that as a team, you are able to collaborate better and continue to deliver value. If you are looking at moving to an electronic board, this course is for you!
