May it be at the workplace or at home, Personal Kanban can simplify work and present it in a way that results in useful insights.

To make Personal Kanban more accessible to everyone in the digital age, KanBo has created a special board called MyBoard. MyBoard automatically collects all your assigned tasks and places them in lists to make your work visible. This article will examine 5 ways in which KanBo’s digital Personal Kanban can transform the way you do work on a daily basis.

Personal Kanban in the Digital World

The concept of using Personal Kanban as a productivity approach in everyday life is not a new one. It is a tried and tested method of boosting productivity by visualizing work and limiting work-in-progress to avoid doing too much at the same time (bad multitasking). However, the old, physical ways of implementing the Personal Kanban are no longer practical in the modern world.

With the host of technological features available to us, we need new ways to integrate our productivity with our technology. KanBo’s MyBoard is the smart union of productivity with cutting edge technology that makes work more intuitive and more practical than ever before.

5 Ways to Improve Work with Personal Kanban

KanBo’s MyBoard is packed full of useful features to transform the way you work. Get started by exploring the 5 ways to help you get the most out of Personal Kanban.

1. Boosting Work Visibility

MyBoard is a unified platform to visualize all your work coming from multiple boards (sources) and present a comprehensive overview of your workflow. The board helps you get a 360-degree view of all your work with full transparency.

With Personal Kanban’s work visibility features you can stay updated through notifications and use timeline to track your deadlines. Finally, you can invite others to your Personal Kanban (MyBoard) as visitors so they can see what you are currently working on, what is next in your pipeline and where you are waiting on others and why. This opens up a whole new channel of communication that eliminates the need for time consuming and unnecessary meetings while boosting transparency at the same time.

2. Going Beyond Real Time

In today’s fast paced world, staying updated at all times is crucial. Transcend physical and geographical boundaries with Personal Kanban that goes beyond real-time. KanBo eliminates delays and presents a consistent picture of work for all to see regardless of time or place. Equipped with features such as activity presence, current card visitors, action indicators and read receipts, you can collaborate and bridge gaps to work efficiently.

3. Unlock the Potential of Remote Work

Work is no longer about the time you put in and all about the productivity you achieve. KanBo provides round the clock availability and access to unlock the true potential of working remotely. Whether it’s keeping up with your coworkers with activity streams, figuring out block-ups or controlling detail levels in streams, KanBo handles it all to give you the full remote work experience so you and your team can work out loud.

4. Understand your work better with Multiple Views

Manage your work better by viewing it from different perspectives with multiple visualizations. Keep an eye on work that needs to be done, find out work capacity gaps and more with the useful insights and views available in MyBoard and any other KanBo Board.
