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