Aside from the practice, the book is clear and practical, with doses of philosophy stirred in with the practicality. It's definitely worth a read, and the technique is easy to try. See if it works for you.
Personal Kanban allows the vital communication between staff members and with management to be fluid. People, in my experience, want to do their jobs well and want to be a part of a group that allows individuals to make decisions and be responsible for their part without the need for orders. PK is a focal point that fosters total participation.
Described as a system that abhors rules, there are only 2 rules: Visualize your work, and limit your WIP (Work In Progress). Visualizing your work involves getting ALL of your current work items written down (They use the example of a Post-It note), which is very similar to David Allen's "get everything out of your head". Having all of your tasks on sticky notes allows you to see everything you need to get done, and thus helps with making the decision of what is the best next thing to do.
Limiting your WIP means only allowing yourself to move on a small number of tasks at one time until that task is complete. This basically is a method of preventing multi-tasking which has been shown to reduce productivity.
Using these 2 rules, Personal Kanban then goes through and shows you how to set up your first Kanban board, how to "pull" tasks through the system, how to set your own personal WIP limit, and some advanced topics (Metrics, task categorization, implementing with other system like GTD, etc).
Personal Kanban does a good job of explaining the concepts to help you get up and running. It has a good level of detail and offers explanations as to why you want to implement the rules of the system. Writing is clear and concise and examples are provided to help drive home points, although I wish that either more examples or a case study to help visualize the process.
On the downside, Personal Kanban goes a bit overboard on a few topics, jumping on them over and over again (Limiting WIP). I think that while the topic is important, another method other than repetition could have been chosen to explain it's importance. I would liked to have seen more discussion on the more advanced topics like metrics and implementing it with other systems. At times, it felt very disorganized about incorporating personal tasks with business and/or career tasks. Finally, I have found that the system has too much overhead for people that have a lot of projects on the go and/or a large backlog. The amount of sticky notes becomes massive and it seems that the only way is to have an entire whiteboard for each and every project; something that isn't too appealing. Nothing was really offered on what to do about this.
Despite all this, I recommend reading Personal Kanban if the topic interests you. It wasn't life changing for me, but more of a minor evolution or a tool that I can use. But I do think that I would need to make some changes to the system as a whole to make it work for me.
If you have read other books on the topic, such as GTD, you may get less out of it. You probably can get away with reading a few blog posts or watching a video about it. The book has too many elaborate anecdotes for the advance reader. However, if the reader is new to the topic, the anecdotes help make the concepts clearer, and it also conveys the right mentality when using these kinds of systems.
