Currently, we’re implementing new processes at our company essentially from scratch, but there are a lot of opinions on which columns should be on the task board. As the one responsible for this effort, I’m a bit stuck on which columns are absolutely essential and which could be added later if proven necessary. My goal is to keep things as simple as possible in the beginning.
We (PM team) started with:
| TODO | IN PROGRESS | IN TESTING (QA) | DONE |
But then the engineering leads insisted that a CODE REVIEW column must exist between IN PROGRESS and QA. That said, I think there’s merit to that argument , and I started to wonder what else we might’ve missed. I’d love to get more data on what other PMs use as columns on the task board.
