Our learning team creates programs, events, and workshops to help smart media people continue to learn. How they prioritize their work: Kanban.Kanban started at Toyota as a way to prioritize assembly line production. Developers use it to prioritize workflow. You can apply Kanban to any work you do. Create three columns:
- Queue: Work that needs to be done
- Doing: Projects or tasks you’re currently working on. Set a limit: no more than say 5 (we’re cheating in the picture!)
- Done: Projects you finish
Move items from the Doing column to the Done column. Only when a task moves from Doing to Done can you grab a new task from the queue.
At the end of the week, empty the Done Post-its and refresh.Supplies needed: Post-its, Markers, Work
