    Hi Sudi,

    It will be great if you can bring the key outcome/ impact of personal kanban.  Also any case will help to understand how to prepare and typical journey.

      Hi Prasad,

      I will show how both WIP and Cycle Time for closing our own actionables come down over time... once you are concsiously flowing things and looking at them visually.

      I am sharing my personal journey in this process... the presentation slides (enclosed) talk about how I went about doing it myself. I will update them with all the "Continuous Improvement" changes that I did till that point of time. 

      Hope that will suffice.

        Hi Prasad,

        Thanks for the nice topic. I have one question. Are you going to focus more on using Personal Kanban to solve your personal problem or Work problem or Both?

        What is the main focus :)

          Personal Kanban helps you improve your own productivity, whether that is at work or in your personal life. So, it has a broader objective. 

          Hope that clarification helps...
