Kanban in a Can: Capture, Visualize and Optimize your Everyday Processes

906 views

Published on

Kanban in a Can: use online taskboards, like Kerika, to capture, visualize, share and optimize your everyday business processes.

While we can all agree that 3-ring binders really suck as a way of capturing business processes, not many of us have moved past posting PDFs on our Intranets.

But PDFs on Intranet is just "paper on glass": instead of printing and distributing 3-ring binders, you are just moving the printing problem to your users.

Visual process templates is an innovative solution to shortening the PDCA cycle in a dramatic way.
