Personal Kanban is a gateway drug. After you begin visualizing your tasks and goals across all facets of life, you can start viewing the items in your backlog as options. You can think of your life as a system that can be primed to increase the likelihood of certain outcomes.
This session will present real life examples of how lean and agile principles and practices can be applied at a personal level. An exercise will follow each example to illustrate how you can try Personal Kanban, Real Options, and Cynefin to balance and prioritize work, home/family, and social commitments. Applying these concepts and principles at a personal level can also be a great way for coaches, Scrummasters, and facilitators to fully understand a technique before applying it with a team or organization.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Create and populate a personal workflow visualization i.e. a Personal Kanban board
  • Describe prioritization decisions and trade-offs
  • Understand the complexity of different tasks, allocate time and effort based on complexity
  • Use basic affinity mapping techniques to select areas for improvement or amplification
