Everybody knows this: multitasking is bad and should be avoided at all costs.

Ironically, however, even with this insight most organisations battle to reduce the number of ongoing business projects.

Why is that?

In this Business Agility Daily I don't just answer this question but also show you a simple trick to effectively limit the number of concurrent projects.

As a bonus I'll demonstrate Kanbanize's timeline feature to help you visualise your re-imagined project portfolio.

If you want to delve deeper, you may also want to have a look at this excellent article on Kanbanize's blog: Kanban to the Rescue: Managing Multiple Projects in an Agile Environment.

Spending upwards of 5h producing each high quality episode sadly turned out to be unsustainable for us and we have put this series on ice for now.

You can still find links to all previous 65 episodes here or join the conversation on the eXuviate Network.
