Getting it Done: Using KanBan in a Library Consortium to Improve What We Do and How We Do It

With 5 dedicated staff members and 17 member libraries, the CLC has lots of ideas about how to best serve the libraries and improve patron experience, and the capacity for only a fraction of them. For the past three months, we have been moving our work from a HelpDesk and a long list of projects to the KanBan workflow management method in order to lay bare all of our work, use feedback loops and data to prioritize what’s most impactful, and
get it from backlog to done in a predictable and repeatable way.

We are still building our process and while we have a long way to go, we have already seen marked improvements
in the quality, speed, and consistency of the work that flows through the KanBan boards. Wes Osborn and Kalee Burkett will share about our journey in implementing this new way of working.
