A Kanban for Marketing Board Example

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

(originally posted on the agilesparks blog)

Here is an example of a fairly typical Marketing Kanban board which can be useful for marketing teams that are taking their first steps towards implementing agile marketing in practice using kanban.

You can print it out and use it as a source of ideas & inspiration as you evolve your own board.

It is a slightly modified version of Henrik Kniberg’s Kanban Kick-Start Example that he graciously shared using a creative-commons license. Why do we need a marketing version you ask? Because we find that people connect better to examples in their own domain so talking about code and development doesn’t really work well with marketers… Feel free to take this one and adapt it for your use and share alike! (Here’s a powerpoint version you can edit)

PS I’ll be using this version for the first time in the Agile Marketing class I’m co-teaching with Jim Ewel next week in Boston.

I’m working more and more with “Agile Marketing” teams and organizations where this is even more of an emphasis than usual.  Continue reading “How to REALLY Add Learning to your Agile Marketing Flow”
