We all want to do a good job – for our colleagues, our family, and ourselves. Overwhelmed with obligations and inundated with work, we multitask without even realizing it.

Personal Kanban is all about understanding and effectiveness. People are so busy they cant see past their daily to-dos. They let options slide by while working on tasks of little value.

Personal Kanban runs in the background, always providing you with information and not adding additional work or pain.
Personal Kanban is a system that has only two basic rules: Visualize Your Work and Limit Your Work-in-Progress.
