Taming the Chaos: Beyond the Quick Wins

Your team uses visual boards and everyone loves the increased visibility. But you're nowhere near the utopia you read about in the books. From everything you’ve read, you should be finishing projects early by now and finding time for those elusive things like 'keeping the lights on' and innovation. Can’t someone lend a hand?

Julia Wester will share tangible steps to transform shallow visual systems into robust ones based on focus, flow and continuous improvement.
