About the presenter
Jim Benson's career path has taken him through government agencies, Fortune 10 corporations, and start-ups. Through them all his passion remained consistent – applying new technologies to work groups – in each case asking how they can be leveraged to collaborate and cooperate more effectively.


Jim writes:

"Personal kanban is an idea that arose from necessity. In the first half of 2009, I found myself with more commitments than I could process. Multiple companies, projects, and clients were working hard to destroy my personal life. That’s when the differences between personal kanban and industrial kanban began to crystallize. I realized that:


  • Tasks were unruly
  • Work in Progress was harder to manage
  • The only way out is often through (you can’t delegate, procrastinate, or ignore personal work)
  • Personal projects were often short lived, but with definite value streams


While people could hear me screaming from time to time, I burned through an amazing amount of work and – when it was over – I knew exactly what I’d done, how long it took, what held me up and why.

Kanban itself is a time proven process management tool. It is simple to learn the basics and to get started. After that, the kanban teaches you."
