  1. I missed a few things that I wanted to get across on the liminting Work In Progress (WIP) front due to a battery flashing warning messages every two seconds: – You always have roadblocks in a project. If you hit one and dont have enforced WIP limits then commonly what happens is you pick up a new card and just work around the roadblack. When you do have WIP limits in place the roadblock becomes a major issue and is a stong focus for the team to remove. This is one reason why I love limiting WIP, because it forces the team to concentrate rather than ignore issues.- The easiest way to limit WIP is to make up say two avatars for the team members. At any point in time you have can a person’s avatar on two cards, any cards without avatars should not be inside the flow as they aren’t being actively touched.- Kanban changes the limit WIP away from avatar focussed to flow focussed and limits the number of stories in a state or activity. This enables you to focus on the theory of constraints and specialisations.
