Things Everybody Knows About Except Me, Part 2

I saw this in Rimini Street’s Michael Louie’s office wall, a graphic and kinetic method for keeping track of projects 1. to be, 2. being, and 3. been.

I’d never seen anything like it before and thought it was pretty cool. Then Michael told me it was, in fact, a tried and proven system for “just in time” manufacturing and quality assurance, called Kanban (ˈkänbän/), in use for nearly a generation. Regardless, I like the visual representation of various projects working their jolly way through to completion. I can imagine the shiver of satisfaction I’d experience every time I moved a Post-it® to the column on the right.
