Personal Kanban Celebrates Five Years With an Online Course

Launching Feb. 18, 2016: self-paced instruction, videos, and forums with lifetime access across all devices

Published: Monday, February 1, 2016 - 17:04

Most of us struggle to keep up with ever-changing responsibilities that prevent us from doing our best. The human brain doesn’t respond well to the stress of juggling multiple priorities. Cognitive overload destroys productivity, zapping our focus and motivation. That’s where Personal Kanban can help. 

Modus Institute is launching an online course, Person Kanban—Taking Control of Your Work & Your Life, on Feb. 18, 2016, which offers self-paced instruction, videos, and forums with lifetime access across all devices.

Personal Kanban is an award-winning productivity system that enables us to understand our work and what is expected of us, master our workload, and reduce our stress. Personal Kanban has two simple rules:
Rule one: Visualize your work. You are up to 78-percent more likely to complete things if you get them out of your head and put them in writing.
Rule two: Limit work in progress. Difficult multitasking increases task completion times by 50 percent and drastically decreases quality.

Personal Kanban enables us to see, control, and complete our work.

The online course is taught by Jim Benson and Tonianne DeMaria Barry, creators of Personal Kanban and authors of the Shingo-Award winning book Personal Kanban: Mapping Work | Navigating Life. Benson and Barry are pioneers of lean for knowledge work and have helped clients in more than two dozen countries implement the principles of Personal Kanban, including organizations as diverse as Starbucks, Spotify, the United Nations, Riot Games, the World Bank, State Farm, Statoil (Norway) Sparebanken Vest, JP Morgan, H&M and ComcastNBCUniversal.

You’ll learn how to:
• Better prioritize your tasks
• Increase focus
• Complete your work with quality results
• Create better daily work habits
