One of the strongest value propositions of the card-based interface is its ability to clarify even the most complex projects or initiatives.
Within the KanBo solution, which uses the concept of KanBan lists and cards to break projects into a simple, straight-forward process, you have the ability to capture everything needed to complete a task within a single card, and then drag-and-drop those cards into whatever order makes sense.
As priorities change, KanBo allows you to reorder the cards in a way that allows you and your team to quickly identify what needs to happen next — and avoid get side-tracked by tasks that are not yet clearly defined or that cannot be completed without additional input. What’s more, you can ask questions, and @ mention team members, requesting the information and documentation necessary to complete a task. A card becomes the place where discrete tasks are accomplished. Once completed, the entire history of the task can be archived, giving you a history of the task and what it took to complete the work — to be stored as part of your knowledge management system.
