  • What if your parents or teachers told you that after you graduate HS or college that you never had to learn every again? What would you say?
  • What if your parents or teachers told you that after you graduate HS or college that you never had to learn every again? What would you say?
  • Do we stop learning after college?
  • So what is the value of personal growth? Do you get personal growth through…
  • Are there any other ways to self educate or grow your craft? [Ask audience] How about being mentored? How about asking those around you for advice? How about creating what I call a Personal Board of Directors?
  • So we’ve pretty much established that personal growth is important. It’s something that we innately value as people.
  • We’ve verified that growth is part of life. We expect it to happen to ourselves, and in turn, we expect it to happen to others. We live in a world where growth is EXPECTED, ASSUMED.
  • If we expect growth to be a natural part of life, wouldn’t we expect it from our teams as well?
  • If we expect growth to be a natural part of life, wouldn’t we expect it from our teams as well?
  • So how can your teams continually improve themselves? Leadership and a useful tool from Japan.
  • A tool for visual learning and team self-education
  • IT IS A PRESENTATION! Started by Astrid Lein and Mark Dytham --- February 2003 Architects!
  • Billboard – visualize workflow
  • Grandfather of the Toyota production system which became LEAN manufacturing in the USA later
  • Scheduling systems are complicated. There is a better way to visualize work based on a pull system of demand.
  • This is all of the work you need to do, prioritized by importance at the top.
  • This is the work you are doing now with a WIP or work in progress limit
  • This is simply the stuff you’ve gotten done.
  • As you complete a task to DONE you can move a new task to the in progress section.
  • Visualizing my workflow makes me happy. I can win every day and see my progress as it is moved across the board
  • As you can see I have many things to do. Remember, these items are sorted by priority
  • I have one task up on the board. My work in progress limit is 2. I’m not a multi-tasker, but I can get one thing done with excellence!
  • For the current week, I’ve completed a lot of things that I needed to do.
  • WIFE IS HAPPY
  • Kanban is great for new ideas or new initiatives in your life, or new projects. I was a n00b in my marriage to my wife. We needed a way to visualize our work and get those prioritized completed!
  • Kanban is great for personal overall time management
  • Kanban is great for work
  • Kanban is great for teams, especially working on software development
  • All you need is a wall, some tape, some sticky notes, a pen, and an idea or project that you want to manage
  • Hopefully Kanban can make your life easier and happier. Why? Because you can visualize your workflow and manage it simply and effectively
