As an Agile coach I have got many questions about what is the best tool to manage a virtual board in Kanban. The first idea to come to my mind is: why many people are more concerned about¬† tools (and processes sometimes ) instead of worrying more on “Individuals and interactions” such as one of the Agile values recommend us.

Anyway, after recommending to start using a physical board which is the best information radiator for every locale team I suggested them a couple of Kanban tool such as Kanban tool which is the software that I explain on this article.

What is Kanban Tool?

Kanban Tool is a visual process management solution that helps teams to work more efficiently, visualize workflow, analyze and improve business processes in line with Kanban method.

I am all about helping companies to adopt agile as methodology in Chile. Why? I believe many organizations think that agile is not for Chilean companies because of Chilean culture is totally different from i.e. USA culture but I worked with Chilean professionals who after using agile realized it is feasible to implement it. Agile works in small and large projects and there are many evidences which demonstrate this.
