Project Management, Diner Style


After a tour of the Menlo innovations office we were determined to make their process fit our much smaller team and workflow. Inspired by order carousels at diners we quickly outfitted ourselves with magnets and index cards. Pure genius.

We utilized their notecard system- using index cards with a specific format and sticky note system to denote task types and instructions, we simplified the overall view by sticking them above each work station.  Because of our work-bar standing shared work space it’s easy to see what the team is working on at a glance to easily assess everyone’s workload and priorities.
