What is this? Who is it for? • Development = development :o)
This is a detailed example of a fairly typical 2-tier Kanban • Acceptance = we think we are done, so ask stakeholders to

taking their first steps towards implementing it in practice. • Prod = the feature is in production. Done-done. Nothing left
How do I use it? to do. Empty this column from time to time. This is the ”feel
good” column, to see what we recently accomplished.
Like a code example. Use it as a source of ideas & inspiration
when you create your own board. Or copy & evolve. What about tracking?
Does my Kanban board have to look like this? At the moment this example does not include anything about
how to track lead times and such. One simple way is to

• Tasks are part of a feature, the stuff that needs to be done
to implement that feature. They don’t flow across the board, Who created this example and why?
instead their state is indicated by colored markers. When a I did (Henrik Kniberg). I notice that many fledgling Kanban
