Are you or people in your organization feeling overwhelmed with their workload? Do they feel they are not getting the results they want from the actions they are taking? Does everything seem urgently important?
Despite our best intentions, life has a way of becoming complicated. People, tasks, responsibilities, deadlines, and even recreation all compete for our attention. The human brain, however, simply does not respond well to the stress of juggling multiple priorities.
This session will introduce you to Personal Kanban™, which is based on Lean principles and has proved to be a valuable tool for personal effectiveness and improvement. The effectiveness comes not from machine-like productivity and utilization, but from creating value and doing the right thing at the right time.
Personal Kanban™ has two core practices derived from the big-K Kanban (visualize and limit work-in-progress) and, like its enterprise sibling, Personal Kanban™ can be your improvement engine. You can apply it to achieve clarity in meetings and conversations, to avoid bottlenecks in improvement initiatives, to handle tasks during the sprint, to guide your professional development, and to deal with other types of demand. This session will give you both an explanation and hands-on experience with Personal Kanban.
Personal Kanban™ was created by Jim Benson and Tonianne DeMaria Barry. Find out more at http://www.personalkanban.com
