Overall Satisfaction with Kanban Tool

Kanban Tool is being used by specific groups within the Technology department and the specific business groups that are supported by the same Technology groups. Kanban allows team collaboration between groups whether it's technology or business. Both groups can view, manage and maintain projects using Kanban. The problem that Kanban solves is miscommunication, regarding project status, requirements, and deadlines. Kanban keeps track of projects for all groups and notifies groups of any changes to particular projects. This saves a lot of time for everyone and ensures projects are completed on time.
  • Kanban board is a great visual that shows every team member's projects and all the important information on a single page.
  • Kanban integrates well with JIRA to track and manage projects and quickly retrieve specific information on a project.
  • Kanban allows easy navigation with drag and drop features and smartly notifies the user of each action.
  • Kanban does not show the task or story clearly. You have to open the project separately to view the details of the project.
  • Kanban gives a higher level project management view but it lacks customization and personal settings features.
  • I would like to see Kanban provide mobile access to their tool, data, and board. This would be very useful for all companies and provide an increase in efficiency and productivity.
  • Kanban has helped both business and technology groups to meet project deadlines more often and on time.
  • Kanban has allowed the business to visually track and receive live updates on any project whereas before they had to schedule meetings and take the time to ask and understand all the details. Kanban provides all of this information and makes it accessible to all users.
  • Kanban has given project managers to easily monitor and manage projects and quickly retrieve any data related to a particular team's work-flow process.
  • Kanban has given technical users the ability to manage their own projects while communicating their progress and updates to their users and team leads or managers.
Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.
Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.
