Mind Map To Kanban

The Ultimate Work Management System

The Big Idea

We all have demands on our time. Whether it’s in business, at work, in our education, or in our personal lives, we often care about just one thing: Getting the work done that’s on our plate, before the next bunch of demands land on our To Do Lists.

To make matters worse, we manage a lot of tasks and ideas in our heads, which get filled with what we must do, who it is for, when it must be done, how it must be done, and even why it must be done in the first place.

Read how you can get all of this out of your head and executed effectively using Visual Project and Task Management Processes and Tools that are Lean and Agile.

If you've read our Free Book, The Ultimate Work Management System you learned that work goes through 3 phases:

  • The Idea Phase
  • The Organising Phase
  • The Implementation Phase

You also learned that each phase suits a different personality - and can be seen as three different roles.

  • The Entrepreneur Role (Ideas, Vision, Strategy)
  • The Manager Role (Organising People, Tasks, Resources)
  • The Technician Role (Execution Phase, Technical Work, Skilled, Knowledge Workers)

I went on to show you that Large Organisations normally have different people for each of these roles.

In Smaller Organisations or in your Personal Life the Same Person most likely performs more than one role - and it is a Challenge.

A Changing World

In today’s fast paced world, we have more demands on our time than ever.

There have been lots of changes in the Task and Project Management Industry to solve this. In fact, in the last 5-10 years there have been more changes in this industry than in the history of humankind.

These are some of the factors influencing change:

  • Social Forces (Collaboration, Knowledge Workers, Remote Workers)
  • Technology Forces (Connected World, Outsourcing, Collaboration, in hands of Individuals and Small Businesses)
  • Economic Forces (Affordable, Free Stuff, Start Cheaply, Scale when necessary)

The Problem

Coming up with a Universally Accepted Task and Project Management System is hard.

This can be seen by the large numbers of solutions available. Here are some of them:

  • GTD - David Allen
  • Personal Kanban - Jim Benson
  • Kanban - David J Anderson
  • Scrum - Jeff Sutherland
  • First Things First - Stephen R. Covey
  • Gantt Charts

There are also lots of other Time and Task Management Methods, Books, Systems, Software & Consultancy Services around.

As a Mind Mapper and Project Manager, I've been grappling with this for more than 20 years in the Corporate World.

Recently, I had to figure a way that worked for me, as a small business owner, with limited resources and often performing all three roles, Entrepreneur, Manager and Technician.

People have been asking me how I do so much with such a small team.

As I like to help people and make a difference in people’s lives (My Free Content, should be testament enough), I am now sharing my methods with you.

The Solution

Let me tell you about the solution.

The Ultimate Work Management System consists of Visual Tools, Processes and Methods that are aligned to the three phases of work: the Idea Phase, the Organising Phase and the Implementation Phase.

It is based on Lean and Agile Methodologies using Visual Tools combined with a workflow system called Kanban. You first use visual tools to Visualize Your Work and then Kanban to Manage Your Work in Progress.

These two phases of work are assisted by a Visual Planning Board.

This provides an Integrated Process to go from Idea to Implementation that can be easily learned and applied to any work situation.

Kanban is a Visual Card System that visually manages workflow from start to finish. It was first introduced by Toyota in their production line, facilitating a ‘Just in Time’ manufacturing process that eliminated waste and improved quality. It made them the leading car manufacturer in the world.

It was then applied in the fast changing Software Development Field, where continuous delivery and quality were needed just to survive.

Recently, Kanban has also been applied in other areas - and it can be applied by you.

Personal Kanban

Personal Kanban has been promoted by Jim Benson. It is a subset of Kanban and only has two rules:

  • Visualize Your Work
  • Limit Work in Progress

I’ve introduced Mind Mapping as an optional Visualization Tool, as it is the Perfect Tool to Visualize Your Work and Complement Personal Kanban.

The Ultimate Work Management System is therefore a Visual Method to Visualize, Organize and Minimize your Work to get more quality work done, meeting scope, time and budget constraints.

The Value Proposition

For people who are looking to handle their work more effectively, whether it is to save time and effort, or to get ideas implemented, The Ultimate Work Management System is a new way of integrating the different phases of work.

Unlike traditional project and task methods, The Ultimate Work Management System applies Visual systems, tools and processes that are best suited to each phase of Your Work.

Users of The Ultimate Work Management System find that they get quality work done, get work-life balance, do work that matters, and reduce stress levels to live fruitful, productive lives.
