  2. step 1 Visualise your work . www.flickr.com/photos/3oheme/5141328136
  3. Get a whiteboard, break down the flow of work from the moment you start it to when it's finished into distinctive steps and draw a column for each
  4. Next, get some stickies in as many colors as you can www.flickr.com/photos/rameshng/5723481678
  5. Write down each task on a separate sticky note www.flickr.com/photos/philliecasablanca/3007652539
  6. Use different colors for different types of work
  7. And put them on the whiteboard. Each task will move from left to right until it's done and leaves the workflow.
  8. Creating good workflow takes time and practice, but there are few basic examples you can begin with.
  9. Simple layout like this one is a good starting point, especially for Personal Kanban and small teams.
  10. A more complex example of time driven workflow for Personal Kanban and small teams.
  11. Workflow for software development company
  12. Kanban Sales Pipeline
  13. step 2 Limit work in progress . With two hands you can juggle only few balls before you start dropping them www.flickr.com/photos/philliecasablanca/2584411389
  14. At 100% capacity you have minimal throughput http://www.flickr.com/photos/lingaraj/2415084235
  15. And Kanban is all about maintaining flow and eliminating waste. waste. www.flickr.com/photos/cefeida/4109239083
  16. Start by putting limits on columns in which work is being performed
  17. WIP Limits aim to enforce a high, smooth flow of work and eliminate different kinds of waste
  18. On the personal level this gets much simpler
  19. After you introduce the WIP limits you can try to propagate them back through the workflow, observe results and adapt. Getting limits right takes time, so start with your best guess and fine-tune over time. The ultimate goal is to achieve constant, high throughput and personal / team performance.
  20. step 3 Don't push too hard Pull instead photo adapted from www.flickr.com/photos/stevendepolo/3212039475
  21. It's easy to get friction between different teams, especially when one is more performant...
  22. … and pushes more work than another one can actually handle.
  23. A solution to this is a pull system, system, where next team pulls work only when ready for it.
  24. You can implement pull system by adding a limited capacity buffer between teams.
  25. step 4 Use it! - then - Monitor, adapt and improve .
  26. The best tool to measure Kanban performance is Cumulative Flow Chart
  27. Each day, for each column, mark how many tasks are in it or somewhere further down the workflow. This will produce a mountain-like looking chart, which gives insight into the process, shows past performance and allows to predict future results
  28. One of the many things you can read from it is the mean time for task to get through the workflow www.slideshare.net/yyeret/explaining-cumulative-flow-diagrams-cfd Note that without limit on Work In Progress, the Mean Cycle Time tends to increase drastically ...
  29. … eventually leading to the dreaded waterfall model www.slideshare.net/yyeret/explaining-cumulative-flow-diagrams-cfd
