7 Kanban Templates for Your Team

You can find all these Kanban templates in Teamhood software as predesigned workspaces to kick-start your journey and reduce time and effort required. We also have a separate post dedicated to Kanban Card templates.

Discover the basics of Kanban, its principles, and essential tools like project visualization, WIP limits, and feedback loops in the Ultimate Kanban Project Management Guide.

Use a Kanban board system to either separate the complicated process steps or separate planning and execution.

Separating process steps allows you to visualize design and manufacturing tasks on different boards. Thus giving both teams more autonomy and allowing them to track their process more accurately.

By separating planning and execution, you will have greater control of your plans and when they are realized. Create long-term plans and specify urgent needs the team has to respond to. Move tasks between the boards when they are ready for the next phase. The best part, you still get to do Kanban prioritization and execution on the same board.
