  A Brief Introduction to Personal Kanban

Personal Kanban has just two simple rules and a few basic components:

Rule 1: Visualize Your Work Because you can better manage what you can see.

Rule 2: Limit Your Work-In-Progress Because you can't do more work than you can handle.

Component 1: Options The work you might choose to do.

Component 2: Doing The work that is currently in flight (this work is intentionally limited to what you are capable of doing).

Component 3: Done The work you have completed.

Component 4: Tasks The actual work.

This video covers the 2 rules and the 4 basic components.

Reflection:

Ask yourself:

  • Where does your work come from?
  • What would life be like it you were not overloaded?
  • How would you work differently if you could see what your colleagues were doing?
  • What options do you feel you have when choosing what work to take on?

Exercise:

Create your first Personal Kanban and populate your Options and Doing Columns.
