KANBAN Tools


You want to deploy a KANBAN with cards and, of course, you have to build your KANBAN Cards, Batch building Boxes and Launcher.

You can easily create all these tools with office accessories and use small cards (T-Cards or cards at credit card format).
This material is easy to find and this is the main reason why small KANBAN Cards are popular.

Unfortunately this is a common mistake. Using small cards, you'll lose them when using the system. Few days or months later, you'll discover a lack of kanban cards and your KANBAN inventory has become a big mess.

The lost of cards is the main cause of failure of KANBAN implementations. With cards missing, the system does not work, as a consequence the operators do not respect it and so, they stop to use it.


These are our recommended tools:
