Scrum Task Board

Scrum teams use a visual tool called a Scrum Task Board to monitor and manage work during a sprint or iteration. It is a key component of Scrum, offering visibility into the team’s operations and promoting efficient team communication. The team can more easily comprehend their current situation and work together to accomplish their objectives when tasks, user stories, and work items are arranged and visualized on the task board.
