Limit Work in Progress: the Second Practice of Kanban

Limit Work in Progress: the Second Practice of Kanban

Today we are going to talk about the second of six practices of Kanban.

 

 

Transcript: Hello everybody. So, back to the six practices of Kanban. Today we’re going to talk about practice number two, and that is limiting your work in progress. You see that here we have our backlog, okay? And here are the pieces of work that are ready to be taken into our workflow. Let’s say we determine these are going to be your work-in-progress limits to start. And this here is going to be five. Design and done. And for both columns, if they’re in design, this is the limit. Four. Now, let’s say we have three here, which is doing and done. And then, in the end, we have nothing that’s in deployed. So what does this mean? To have nothing implies that here is infinite, and here on the backlog is also infinite. So, if you want to have any doubts or questions, or want to get in touch with us, we’re going to have here our contacts. Thank you for following us.

Our company is based in Portugal, but it is by no means bound to our country.

So, back to the six practices of Kanban. Today we’re going to talk about practice number two, and that is limiting your work in progress.

You see that here we have our backlog, okay? And here are the pieces of work that are ready to be taken into our workflow. Let’s say we determine these are going to be your work-in-progress limits to start. And this here is going to be five. Design and done. And for both columns, if they’re in design, this is the limit.

Transcript: Hello, everybody.

Today we’re going to start a series of short videos about the six practices of Kanban. If you’re doing the six practices, then you’re doing Kanban.

Let’s start with the first one, which is: visualize your workflow. This means the workflow that you have right now, not the one you wish to have.

In this case, we have our backlog and here the part which is ready. It’s the pieces of work that are ready to be taken into our workflow. We’ll have the design and we’re going to split design in doing and done, and also the development, doing and done. Here, instead of done, let’s call this deployed.

It’s a very simple example of a possible workflow, and that’s what you have to do in order to model it. This is practice number one.

Lyssa Adkins: a great inspiration

I am very grateful to have met in person Lyssa Adkins

She is the living proof that you can be an expert but still be humble and empathic. I don’t know who else could have provided me a better training.
