Based on the book by Jim Benson, this presentation will look at how Personal Kanban is more than just about increasing productivity. Personal Kanban is about choosing the right work at the right time. Recognizing why we do the things we do. Understanding the impact of our actions. Creating value – not just product. For ourselves, our families, our friends and our co-workers.
