About the Course
Today, work comes at us from many different angles. Projects, family, billable work, non-billable work, personal growth, friends, and so forth.
We spend a lot of time inventing, following, and even becoming certified in processes for teams and work projects. We spend even more time trying to optimize our teams. But teams are made up of people and, in the end, people end up being what makes or breaks the team. Shouldn't we spend some time finding ways to make work better for the people doing it?
Participants will learn what Personal Kanban is, how to apply it and other techniques to manage their own work, and by extension to teams. Each person will design their own Personal Kanban ready for use.
Join creator of Personal Kanban Jim Benson for an engaging session that will help you optimise the individuals as well as the team.
What You Will Learn:
