A Kanban board is a visual tool used for managing work and tasks, commonly associated with the Kanban method. It consists of columns representing different stages of work, such as "To-Do," "In Progress," and "Done." Tasks or work items are represented as cards that move through the columns as they progress, allowing for visual tracking and management of work in a clear and organized manner. You can also add other stages if you want.
