Create More Effective Habits

If you need to increase your effectiveness in the workplace and need a visual management tool to help with day to day task management then this short guide is for you.

Giles Johnston, a business improvement consultant, takes you through the steps needed to implement a low / no cost solution to your day to day management problems - a 'Kamishibai' board.
