Title: Kanban for Everything - Managing Software Projects to Binging Netflix

Speaker: Kat Tornwall

Time/Room: 9:35 AM/Sterling (Ascendum)

Abstract: Between home, family and work, I often feel like I’m too busy to get everything done. I’ve been using Kanban with great success at work, but until talking with my friend, Patrick, I’d never thought about applying this technique outside software. Over the last year, Patrick has more than doubled his media consumption by using a Kanban board to manage what he reads and watches. His story inspired me to bring Kanban into more aspects of my own life, and it’s taught me just how flexible Kanban really is. In this talk, I will go over the basics of using Kanban before diving into several real-life examples of Kanban boards for managing all types of projects using Trello. From organizing tasks at home to managing a software project, we will explore how to improve workflows and get things done. And, of course, we will take a look at Patrick's Netflix board that started it all.
