Avoid Using Blocked Columns on Kanban Boards
Accredited Kanban Trainer Daniel Ploeg notes that one of the common anti-patterns that he often sees with Kanban board design is the use of a Blocked column. Using a Blocked column seems fairly simple at first, but it ends up taking away a lot of important feedback and actions. Using a blocked column often leads to confusion in the workflow, unpredictability, longer lead times and the lack of leadership emergence. Read his blog to learn what not to do and what to try instead.
