What?: Start Your Improvement Journey With Personal Kanban
 
Lean and Kanban are gaining acceptance as ways to manage and improve software development teams.  Surprisingly, the same core principles — visualize what you do, pull, and limit your work in progress — can be applied to personal work; the result is called Personal Kanban. As organizations attempt lean/agile transformations, it is crucial that we understand how Lean works at all levels, including small teams and individuals. Handling tasks during a sprint, conducting a business meeting, planning professional development, you name it – Personal Kanban can help and lead you to improvement. To dive into it, we will use an interactive activity known as Lean Coffee.  This session will give you both an explanation of the principles and first-hand experience and get you started on your own journey of continuous improvement.
