Why and How to Limit Your WIP

In this webinar, we explain why setting work-in-progress limits is necessary if you want to establish and improve your flow of work.

Simply put, you can’t do more work than you can handle. It makes sense, but with all the competing demands on our time, it’s too easy to bite off more than we can chew – and that’s when things can go awry. Our attention to detail suffers, tasks are left unfinished and the quality of our work is compromised. As a result, we’re wasting time, effort and resources.

While limiting your work-in-progress may seem difficult at first, you’ll discover that prioritizing some tasks over others ultimately results in ALL of the tasks being completed sooner than they would have if you’d started them all at the same time.

  1. Nice presentation. I would be interested in learning how these practices can be applied to a manufacturing environment with physical WIP as opposed to knowledge work.
