Practical Time Management Just-In-Time

Time: Thursday Oct 3rd from 1:15PM to 2:45PM

Location: Mountainview Room

Speaker(s): Kjell van Zoen

We have X hours in a day to get X things crossed off the ever-growing to-do list. Most of us end our days with having done less than we thought we should/could/would.

In this workshop, we’ll explore some theory and practical tools around time from the perspective of lean whole systems thinking. Using a tool called a Kanban Board we’ll explore how the theories of Just-In-Time and Single-Piece-Flow can be applied to project, task, and email management. The immediate goal is not to ensure we can do more, but to ensure we realize how much we can really do right now.

Over time the tools change our personal relationship with time and task management. We become more aligned with the reality of how we work, live and play, as both an individual and as part of the many organizations that we may interact with during a given day.

The end goal is to stop feeling uncomfortable with what we can’t do, start appreciating all that we can do, and get more of things that are truly important to us checked off that ever-growing to-do list.
