Visualize your work, limit work in-progress and maximize your flow through the use of a simple tool – a Personal Kanban Board. In this session you will learn how I have used the Personal Kanban Board as a way to build lean learning and capacity, personalize the lean journey and integrate lean coaching strategies across many different teams. Personal Kanban Boards have been the single most impactful tool that I have used to teach, build and learn. In one hour, we will learn the basics, share some implementation strategies and get you set to roll out Personal Kanban Boards for yourself, for your team, and across your organization.
