Learned about Kanban Zone Today

I was attending a webinar today, a community meeting related to Agile development, and someone presented on Kanban Zone.

EDUCBA defines ‘Agile Development’ as, “…though it began in the mid-1990s, whose collaborative effort is of self-organizing and cross-functional teams and their customers/end users, under which requirements and solutions evolve. It encourages rapid and flexible responses to change by advocating adaptive planning, early delivery, evolutionary development, and continual improvement.”

What this means is that there are tons of projects happening at the same time on projects that are also currently being used by a community of users – but that is being developed and improved even if the original release of said product or application was not released with full functionality when first released.

This means that the work-in-progress may develop and grow into a more complex product or application over time – even as users are using whatever is there at the time of access (whenever in the chronology of development it is being used in production).

Kanban (Zone) is simply a method and platform for managing, monitoring, and reporting on the status of development, maybe even feature requests, or tickets submitted to a large and complex team of developers working on either very complex applications or a very diverse set of applications or technology tools (often, both).

There are so many ways of doing this, but I had not heard of Kanban Zone before today – and wanted to share quickly.
