Its transformation! But, is it though?
The word transformation has become an overused and cliché term in business today. Few companies undergo any dramatic change in such efforts, and most don't change at all. So what is going wrong? Join Ray Arell as we explore the flaws in the current approach to transformation efforts. Then together, we will examine ways to rebalance those efforts to more force on key catalysts that enable your teams and business to evolve continuously - helping your company prosper and grow.
Introduction to Personal Agility with Kanban Journaling
One of the biggest inhibitors to personal agility is having too much work in progress and no system to help visualize and manage your work. This ultimately inhibits you from entering what Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi calls flow—a happy state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand. In this talk, Ray Arell examines the concepts around flow and Kanban and how these can be applied to journaling. We will also explore examples of how to set up your journal with this method and how to use this system to manage your day more effectively to promote flow.
