I presented this deck in Times Square at the AgileDay NYC conference on 11/14/2019. This two-part interactive workshop begins with a look at how to interpret Kanban boards and ask thoughtful questions so that you can improve the work of your teams. We briefly review the Kanban Method, and take a look at some unique Kanban boards to get a sense of the richness and variety of information that can be represented; how a Kanban board becomes a kind of dashboard or nerve center for all kinds of knowledge work.
In Part two of the session we take a look at three business challenges and see how different kanban board designs help us address the challenges. The first challenge focuses on flight level one; with a single team struggling to manage their work more effectively. The second challenge moves up to flight level two; the value stream level, challenging attendees to design a board to facilitate coordination across multiple teams. The third and final challenge moves up to flight level three—the strategy level, to look at how to design a portfolio board. For each scenario we first challenge the attendees to design their own solutions and then compare them to some of our examples. The point is clear: with some thoughtfulness and creativity we can design kanban systems that can dramatically transform our way of working.
