Event Details

Join us in our February meeting

Stop starting, Start Finishing


Many software companies are drowning in a sea of opportunity and instead of focusing on getting the highest value items done they are crippled by trying to do too much at one time. In this session we will explore why this is the case and some techniques for resolving the problems.
Learning Objectives:
* Lowering WIP will decrease how long it takes to deliver value
* Shortening cycles and increasing the rate of delivery will build trust
* Throttle demand to meet throughput in order to gain leveled flow
* Identify the constraint in your system and focus on optimizing the whole
* Discipline and trust are at the heart of the issue
