A switch-case workflow in Kanban?



  • Does Kanban support switch-case workflows?

    The example is a code review - it can be performed by either our team's developer or another team's developer. If we need to make any change in another team's repository, then a code review will be performed by another team's developer. And it can be quite complicated because we need to conform to another team's requirements and all we can do is to wait for when the other team do this review - this is a very different process.

    So we have branching: after DEVELOPMENT the issue goes either to INTERNAL CODE REVIEW or EXTERNAL CODE REVIEW.

    The more complex workflow may contain more bracnhes.



  • In Kanban, we want to visualize whatever the workflow is, so if that is your workflow, that is what you should represent.

    That said, there is another part of this answer. Kanban asks us to manage the work, not the people. Therefore, in your example, you would usually represent this work the same way regardless of if it is your team or another.
