A Personal (Kanban) dream come true
A dream of mine is coming true. For some time now, I’ve wanted to reach more people to get the deep benefit of Personal Kanban. I’m also unsatisfied with the big batch approach of one day workshops, where people absorb a lot of material before a chance to apply it. At the same time, I’ve been getting requests to do some remote PK training over the past 6 months so…
Well, the day has come. I’ve launched an online course! I’m excited, yet unsure where it will go, it’s very much an experiment.
Here is why I’m motivated to put the work into this:
- Material absorbed at a more manageable pace. Learn, apply, reflect, repeat.
- I can provide feedback to the board designs multiple times, resulting in a higher quality design.
- Participants get a routine nudge to keep using and experimenting, avoiding the pull back to old, familiar ways.
I’m trying to use Lean Startup, notably Running Lean by Ash Maurya to learn before scaling. The first group is limited to 10 people so that I can invest a lot of time with them, and in turn iterate to create an amazing online learning experience. Only 2 spots remain.
- Frequent touch points in the early going dramatically increase usage and understanding.
- Designing visually is a skill not easily mastered. My taking an active role in designing the initial system produces a much better system to start from, increasing value and motivation for the owner to use.
