Individuals, teams, and organizations constantly feel the pain of overload. Plagued by constant distractions, ambiguous and ever-changing priorities, and a seemingly endless workload-in-flight, while constantly negotiating (and re-negotiating) deadlines, we can't seem to focus, finish, prioritize, or even plan our day let alone improve our work or the way we go about doing it. But not to worry - this is a solved problem.
Personal Kanban is an award-winning productivity and effectiveness system that allows you and your team to visualize, track, communicate, collaborate on, and improve your work in a brain-friendly way.
Creator of Personal Kanban Jim Benson, along with Tonianne DeMaria, his co-author for the Shingo Award-winning book Personal Kanban: Mapping Work | Navigating Life, will teach you how to build flexible collaborative systems to understand, plan, and act on real options.
As knowledge workers, our brains are our primary mode of value-creation, and so any personal or team optimization need to focus on the people doing the work. We need to avoid overload. We need clarity around our work. We need to choose the right work at the right time. We need to focus, finish, and then fine-tune what we’ve already completed.
This two-day intensive (but fun!) class pulls from a host of disciplines and case-studies, incorporating Lean principles, systems thinking, neuropsychology, and behavioral economics to help you better understand and manage personal and project work to end cognitive and office chaos, communications issues, and low morale.
We've delivered this class to the United Nations, the World Bank, Spotify, JP Morgan, Progressive Insurance, Starbucks, ComcastNBCUniversal, Riot Games, Turner Construction, and hundred of other companies and agencies worldwide. Come benefit from our experience and the material that's helped thousands of previously overwhelmed people collaborate better, see what is happening right now, prioritize effectively, and get the right work done at the right time.
