The evils of multi-tasking and how personal Kanban can help you: Sandy Mamoli

We know for a fact that multi-tasking slows us down both physically and mentally. Agile, Lean, Scrum and Kanban limit work in progress (WIP) on a team and organisational level but what about the personal space? What practices can we use as individuals to avoid multi-tasking and achieve flow? This session will explain the research on and theory behind why multi-tasking is bad at every level and through telling the story of Snapper, a company based in New Zealand, I will show how an entire organisation organically adapted Agile practices to extend from the organisational and team level to the personal and individual space. I will demonstrate how personal Kanban works and how my colleagues and I are using it. I will talk about how Agile on a team level has helped us adopt Agile and Lean practices in our daily work lives and will describe how everyone at Snapper and the organisation as a whole have benefitted from the use of personal Kanban. I will also show the personal Kanban boards that have popped up everywhere around the office. Come along and learn how personal Kanban can help you!
