Initiation to Personal Kanban workshop, Ottawa, 9 May 2014
The purpose of this 3 1/2 hour workshop is to initiate you to the fundamentals of Personal Kanban. This simple yet very powerful lean management pattern will allow you to visualize your workflow and limit your work in progress in order to become more effective.
- You are feeling overwhelmed
- You are finding that you are disorganized or not as organized as you could perhaps be.
- You are often procrastinating.
- You have the feeling that you are going round in circle or are hitting a wall.
- You are thinking that you are still far from reaching your optimum level of performance.
- You lack focus and you have difficulties in concentrating on what is really crucial.
Personal Kanban is a Lean management pattern which helps individuals and small teams to :
- (1) visualize their workflow to actually understand their work and
- (2) limit their work in progress.
Elegant in its simplicity, yet extremely powerful, Personal Kanban is an evolutionary system, which adapts to your changing work content and allows you to run visible experiments in continuous improvement (kaizen)
