« The Time Capsule Personal Kanban in Detail | Main | The Subproject Approach to Personal Kanban in Detail »

16 July 2009



"This is why I don’t move completed tasks off a throughput board until the end of the day. If you keep moving them and placing new tasks up there, you really haven’t limited your WIP." That is exactly what I ran into the first day I used the personal Kanban. Very often I will get a call or email that needs to be addressed immediately so I have to drop everything I'm doing and hop on that task. I was wondering if I should put those tasks up on my board or just move along without them up. I started putting some up but found it to be counter productive for me, I need to keep my eye on the big picture what is the main project for me. While I like to see my tasks being moved on the board, it's the major tasks that I would rather see moved along.

Wow! I just drew the same picture yesterday in a kanban discussion with a client. I am liking your blog series. Very nice.
