Lego Kaizen at work

leave a comment »

I have been working a couple of years now using agile methodologies (Scrum).

I started in a new team recently where they use the Scrum methodology.

The team works in the spirit of agile mindset and is constantly finding small improvements. Besides the daily scrum tasks we have the flexibility to take upon Kaizen tasks with the purpose of improving the daily workflow which are not necessarily related to the user stories.

The next thing recently just introduced are the ability to flag your current mode at your desk.

  • Green – Available if you have questions or want help
  • Yellow – Only contact me if it is important
  • Red – Busy at the moment

You take a lego piece and display your current mode.

With this hopefully the team can be more effective where communications is directed at those available and the busy ones have ability to flag that they want to be left alone to complete their tasks without being disturbed.
