In the physical realm, workers such as factory staff, bakers and laborers can see what needs to be done. However, if you are a knowledge worker, it can get hard to view everything that is on your plate because your work has mostly no physical representation.
People have come up with a variety of ways to overcome that problem. Here are a few commonly used methods and tools to keep track of daily tasks:
- Post it notebooks
- Personal planners
- Desk or wall calendars
- Excel sheets
- Specialist solutions for corporations
- Applications for mobile devices
- Personal Kanban
However, all these tools and methods are not always used exclusively. Some of the tasks may reside in the to-do lists made on personal planners while some may be in the mail on Outlook. How do you bring these tasks together to organize them in a comprehensive manner?
KanBo’s MyBoard is the perfect place for organizing all these scattered tasks and bringing them on one place. Every person working with KanBo has a MyBoard, a place where all tasks, including work delegated to them is collected and organized according to the person’s own, unique work style. Regardless of who delegated the task, or which area it concerns, all tasks are located here.
With MyBoard you can solve one of the key problems of the modern knowledge worker:
“Where are all my tasks?”
The answer is simple:
“They are all in your KanBo MyBoard!”
5. Q: How can employees manage tasks delegated to them?
A: Employee’s MyBoard is the place where delegated tasks arrive automatically. MyBoard’s rich set of features empowers employees to personalize their own work stream (Personal Kanban).
How does it work?
Despite all the focus on collaboration, teamwork and joint problem solving, there is little exposure about the importance of having a personal space to manage your own workstream in. KanBo provides employees the personal space where they can practice their own workstyle by planning, prioritizing and managing their own tasks and the work delegated to them.
May it be tasks from a personal project or one that involves your team, you can easily and efficiently manage all kinds of delegated tasks in your MyBoard space.
