About Personal Kanban
Machines need to be productive, people need to be effective
Personal Kanban asks only that we visualize our work and limit our work-in-progress. Visualizing work allows us to transform our workload into an actionable, context-sensitive flow. Limiting our work-in-progress helps us complete what we start and understand the value of our choices.
Combined, these two simple acts encourage us to improve how we work to balance our personal, professional, and social lives.
Focus on doing better, not doing more
Using the same Lean principles from manufacturing that led the Japanese auto industry to become a global leader in quality, Personal Kanban applies them to individual and team work.
Understand why we do the things we do
Neither a prescription nor a plan, Personal Kanban provides a light, actionable, achievable framework for understanding our work and its context.
Learn why students, parents, business leaders, major corporations, and world governments all see immediate results with Personal Kanban.

My career path has taken me through government agencies, Fortune 10 corporations, and start-ups. Through them all my passion remained consistent – applying new technologies to work groups – in each case asking how they can be leveraged to collaborate and cooperate more effectively. I love ideas, creation, and building opportunities. I love working with teams who are passionate about the future. I love pushing boundaries. I love inclusion. My goal with all technologies is to increase beneficial contact between people and reduce the bureaucratic noise which so often tends to increase costs and destroy creativity.
