One of its main advantages is that it is very visual, since it is a board with cards and columns, it is very easy to understand and anyone can observe the work that is being done.
Each column on the board represents a step in the workflow (Example: Idea, To Do, and Done) and each card represents a work item.
If you see it another way, the pieces are tasks, where from the beginning the task is taken and goes through phase by phase until the process is finished.
