Sometimes people ask me, Joseph what’s the simplest Kanban board I could use, one that may even work with a small team?
On those occasions, I am tempted to recommend Trello, but the fact that it does not even have support for Work-in-Progress limits, or mentions Kanban support anywhere dissuades me. Trello seems to have turned into a super-big todo list that uses columns, leaving their users completely ignorant about Kanban.
Today it just happened that I needed one such minimal board, and I thought why not Excel? So I decided to go one better: Google Sheets!
If you need the board to be private, and off-the cloud, easy just download it, and use it with your favorite desktop spreadsheet, I actually like Apple Numbers, but of course there is MS Excel too. And guess what they all have Cloud versions these days, so you have freedom, I hear Apple has better privacy than Google so choose wisely.
Not matter how you choose to use it, here is my Free Minimal Kanban Board, ENJOY!
