Your agile 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?

I will share tangible steps to transform shallow visual systems into robust systems focused on flow, focus and continuous improvement. Leave not only with ideas of how to implement these concepts into your work systems, but also with activities to use with your co-workers to help them understand the journey ahead.
