What is Kanban?

Kanban is a simple way to see different lists visually all in one place. It was originally developed by Toyota in Japan to improve manufacturing efficiency.

We have taken this concept and created Kanbana so you can easily capture, visualize, and prioritize all of your lists in one place.
