Learn how to use the tool used by teams and individuals all over the world.
One of the things every creative professional has to manage is tasks and projects. Regardless if we work on our own or as part of a team. The number of software apps that promise to make this part of our job easier is growing every year. Yet at the core of many of them is a methodology called Kanban.
Kanban is easy to learn. And doing that allows us to design our task and project management in the way that serves us best. Whether we use software for that or just a whiteboard and sticky notes.

I am a certified Scrum Product Owner and Scrum Master. Working with agile teams has taught me a lot about project management in creative environments. No project is like the other. Teams change, customers change, requirements change. For that reason it is important to have a system that can change with you. And that is easily understood by coworkers and customers alike.
What’s great about Kanban is that it is flexible enough to grow from one-person daily task management to a tool that is used by entire teams and complex workflows.
