Kanban Board for QA
Sample QA Kanban Board
This is a sample of a QA Kanban Board that was done a few years ago. Some of the project names were changed to keep it simple.
This team uses Kanban for project management because its easier to focus on tasks rather than the deadline.
It's good idea to use this type of tracking so that people will know what needs to be done and if things are are being worked on.
In this project example, there was a single dedicated QA resource for automation. His job was to make sure that Automation was always up and running. In other teams I have worked on, they would have a separate Kanban board for automation tasks. Usually the availability of time for enhancements is scarce.
Documentation is important - This is something that QA should be doing all the time. QA should always be on the front line of creating and updating the documents. This makes it easy for team members to take over projects when QA resources are on vacation or furlough.
