Presentation Summary from John Tinsley, of Three Deep Marketing:
The word “Kanban” literally translates as signboard or billboard in Japanese. It’s a term that’s quickly becoming part of the vocabulary for anyone working in digital technology. Kanban originated within manufacturing - where the supply of components are regulated through instruction cards sent along the production line.
You’re probably thinking, I’m not a “manufacturing” type business, but neither are we. However, our digital marketing agency produces work that is both siloed (single service line) and inclusive (multiple service lines).
Our presentation will cover how you can use the Kanban method to:
- Visualize Your Work
- Manage Work Flow & Limit WIP (Work In Progress)
- Set Explicit Policies
- Improve & Evolve
We’ll also share some examples and facilitate a discussion to introduce some fundamental features of Kanbanize (www.kanbanize.com) that have helped our team at Three Deep Marketing focus on and improve quality and efficiency.
