Jim Benson is the CEO of Modus Cooperandi Inc, a collaborative management consultancy that specializes in creating cultures of continuous improvement for knowledge workers. With 25 years of experience in very large project management (building freeways, light rail systems, software, and international development projects), Jim has come to the realization that projects veer off-track because of lack of information and overly aggressive planning. Since starting Modus Cooperandi back in 2007, Jim has worked with the United Nations, the World Bank, NBC Universal, British Telecom, The Library Corporation and others to get individuals, teams, and the organizations they work with collaborating and exchanging information effectively. To this end, he created the Personal Kanban methodology, and recently co-authored the book Personal Kanban: Mapping Work | Navigating Life with Tonianne DeMaria Barry.
