Work-in-Progress (WIP)

Work in Progress is any work that has been started but has yet to be completed.

WIP limits are often visualized with Kanban cards. The cards, which are often just post-it notes, represent work in progress. To visualize workflow, Kanban cards are posted on a board in queues representing the status of the work.
