We know for a fact that multi-tasking slows us down both physically and mentally. Agile, Lean, Scrum and Kanban limit work in progress (WIP) on a team and organisational level but what about the personal space? What practices can we use as individuals to avoid multi-tasking and achieve flow?
This session will explain the research on and theory behind why multi-tasking is bad at every level and through telling the story of Snapper, New Zealand’s primary contactless payments platform, I will show how an entire organisation organically adapted Agile practices to extend from the organisational and team level to the personal and individual space and how personal Kanban in turn has influenced our organisation-wide Agile adoption.
I will demonstrate how personal Kanban works and how my colleagues and I are using it. I will show the personal Kanban boards that have popped up everywhere around the office and how everyone at Snapper and the organisation as a whole have benefitted from their use. Come along and learn how personal Kanban can help you!
This session has been part of Agile 2012 in Dallas, Texas and Agile Australia 2013 and have been very well received.
