What is Kanban?Kanban is a visual project management system. Its roots are coming from Toyota work management system based in using visual cards. Today Kanban is used as one of the Agile methods in project management. You manage tasks workflow using cards placed over table columns, from Backlog column towards Done column. One of the rules it so limits work in progress (limit the number of task cards you are working on). The Kanban method is used in various business sectors, software app development, general product development or graphic design services.
How is the Kanban board used?
The natural form of Kanban is having a physical board with paper post-its. This is the easiest and most effective if you can meet with your team in one place.
However, if you need to document, reproduce or share your Kanban tasks, you can use one of the software applications that are on the market (Leankit, Kanbanize, or you can also use general task management apps like Trello, to name a few).
Another way to keep Kanban on a computer is to use common Office applications, like PowerPoint or Excel to note down or present Kanban board.
That's why we designed an editable graphics template with Kanban cards and tables you can use to manage your project with this Agile methodology.
How to use the PowerPoint Kanban board graphics?
It’s simple. Create a whiteboard representation of your Kanban tables and task distribution, add animation to show tasks dynamics.
You can make elegant printable Kanban boards - save your PowerPoint Kanban into PDF and share or print it in large format.

Your graphics add a nice touch to my presentations and I recently used them for one of my all-hands meetings. Your toolbox adds professionalism to my slides. Instead of using standard clipart.

I needed a fresh look at some of my slides. I've tried to find a way to create a paintbrush effect, to underline, accentuate, add some color and the handwritten markers were just the things. Very easy to use, easy to size, change the color. It was an affordable, perfect solution and I'm happy to recommend it.
