Kanban (Japanese signboard or signal card) is based on a very simple idea. Work In Progress should be limited and something new should be started only when an existing piece of work is delivered or accomplished. New piece of work should be postponed until free capacities become available. The number of work in progress (WIP) slots can be adjusted to reach the optimal workload.

Kanban visually exposes bottlenecks, queues, variability and waste – things, which impact the performance of the organization in terms of the quantity of valuable work delivered and time required to deliver it.

Kanban provides team members and external stakeholders with visibility into the effectiveness of their actions (or inactions.)

 

Socialcomm – unication is characterized by:

  • User is a contributor and participates
  • Basic trust
  • Instant feedback channel
  • Rich User Interface incl. real-time
  • In-context-conversations (no-email)
  • Personalization of information (subscription)
  • Free classification of content
  • Non disturbing notifications (no-email)

The human communication is being enriched by a semantic web engine as it generates and seamlessly includes new information into the Socialcomm eco-system based on statistical algorithms.

 

Microsoft SharePoint is used by 78% of Fortune 500 companies as platform for content management, document management, business processes, social, reporting, search and custom applications.
