high-level overview of science projects
This is one of a series of WIP boards, with a high level board to track each of the WIPs. We're using a Kanban style of WIP because there are 1000s of hours of work to do and our department heads were simply overwhelmed. This way, they choose one or two things to work on and cannot work on anything else until they're done. Great morale and productivity improvement.
Getting started tips
Take a look at Kanban methods online. The green boxes indicate WIP. The Priority column helps to make decisions about urgencies within the department and the Complexity column is just an indicator of how long something might take to complete. Two low complexity tasks might be done simulateneously, while 1 high complexity task might be all that can taken on.
"As I said, it is one of a number of similar WIPs. It helps the department heads stage their work."
Why we love this template
Managment can view progress at high level and more granular level. Transparency and communications, re: priorities, are easily done.
Without this template I would
I would not really know where the sticking points are or how complex tasks are. I would not really know why department heads felt overwhelmed or what to do to help them out.
