What is an Electronic Kanban?
Electronic kanban boards, or online kanban boards, are the next generation of Kanban in project management. While many teams still benefit from using whiteboards, cork boards and sticky notes to visually manage their work, many more have turned to electronic kanban (eKanban) as a way to save all past and present project data in one place.
The best thing about an electronic kanban board is that distributed teams can access it from anywhere with an Internet connection. Electronic kanban allows users to track the history of a project and make changes without loosing any data. Online kanban also helps distributed teams see a project’s details without having to take a photo of a physical (manual) kanban board.
