The Game That Will Engage
AskKanban! is a card game that clarifies the ten most effective questions a team can ask to continuously improve.
Your Team to Improve Their Workflow
What Can We Finish Today?
Establish a culture where finishing is favored over starting.
Is Any of Our Work Hidden?
Spot requests which are bypassing the process. Discover them now and make them visible before they impact our flow.
Is There a Pullable Card?
Reducing idle time is the single easiest way to reduce waste and improve flow.
What Can We Swarm?
Improve ow by acting on broken WIP Limits, bottlenecked queues, cards owned by an absent team member, and blocked, stale or risky cards.
Is There an Expedited Card?
Ensure everyone is reacting appropriately to cards that have been identified as emergencies.
Is a Blocked Card Up Next?
If the card at the top of the backlog is impeded, don’t pull it until it is unblocked.
Is There a Demand for Replenishment?
A backlog without a pullable card is a signal of imbalance between capability and demand.
Are We Clear About What’s Next?
Team gatherings should end with clear priority. Don’t confuse conversation with commitment.
Do All Cards in Progress Have an Owner?
In order for a pull system to work correctly, all cards that are in progress must have an owner.
Is Anyone Assigned Too Many Cards?
Context switching causes cards to be idle, which negatively impacts flow.
What is the quality of the cards?
These 4.72" x 4.72" color, double-sided cards are printed on high quality 100 lb gloss paper stock.
When will my order ship?
Orders received by 5 PM Eastern time are shipped the following business day.
How many decks do I need?
A single deck will facilitate strong conversation for a team of 12 or smaller.
