Please note outside of PMI (which I am a member and a PMP), I don't know these organizations, but thought the posts very useful and informational.

I have successfully utilized Kanban Boards as a component of a few different project visualization and management tools for several software product based lifecycles and technology focused support and enhancement initiatives. I have also leveraged very low-tech stickies on a glass wall (which actually worked quite well - although we were nervous about the cleaning staff every night, so we always took at picture at days end).
