WORK SYSTEM DESIGN BEHAVIORS

Build your work system design muscles!

We equip your teams with the 5 Key Behaviors of Agile Work System Design.

They include:

Focus efforts on high value work.

Make work-in-progress easily visible to the team and our stakeholders.

3

Design workflows to be as streamlined as possible.

4

Make iterative improvements to the work system to reduce delays and bottlenecks.

5

Only take on as much work as the team can effectively handle at any one time.
