The Timelessness of Lean Management?  Lessons from the Field


Agile development methods like Scrum, XP, and recently Kanban have achieved notable success in reducing time to value, raising customer satisfaction and associate satisfaction; and reducing waste. Successful practitioners worldwide have cut development lead times, improved product quality and reduced engineering cost.

On review, underlying agile methods are timeless Lean principles, including: focus on customer value, respect for people and continuous improvement.  Sanjiv shares how agile teams in various organizations are implementing Lean management at the project, program and enterprise levels.  From project, product and maintenance teams and Lean-Agile PMOs that manage WIP and collocate in oobeya team rooms, to executive teams that go to the gemba; learn how agile leaders are manifesting timeless Lean management to deliver outstanding customer value.
