Jim Benson is CEO of Modus Cooperandi, a collaborative management consultancy in Seattle, Washington. After being steeped in Agile for many years, Jim started working with Kanban and Lean thinking in 2005. In 2008, he started taking this idea further with Personal Kanban, which brings flow based work to the individual and team. Since then he has been integrating Agile and Lean into his work with his own software company, as well as clients like the United Nations, British Telecom, NBC Universal, and the World Bank. In this episode our guest host Marcel van Hove talks with Jim about Personal Kanban, about which Jim has recently co-authored a book together with Tonianne DeMaria Barry

Show Notes

  • First a general comment: I would find it extremely helpful to also include episode number, date, name of interviewer in the mp3 file.

    I found this episode rather disappointing. There are some interesting questions and answers that deal with IT … for maybe 20 minutes. The rest of the talk boils down to small talk and advertising Jim Benson’s book. It also felt like the person doing the interview didn’t really prepare for the interview.

  • Was going to comment and realized Klaus said it best. For someone looking for good episodes, unless they have a daily/professional interest in this topic – could skip this one. No epiphanies here.
