(Learn more about the full series, here). No time for a full day but want to hear more? Buy us a cup of coffee while we are in town, we would love to chat for 30m.
From the team that managed the award winning Lean Enterprise transformation at Pearson (40,000 employees), we bring you a hands-on workshop that goes deep into the mechanics and mindset of the Lean Transformation Journey.
Large enterprises facing disruption struggle to transform quickly enough - from becoming more innovative to improving processes, culture and ways of working. Transformation programs are often linear, multi-year engagements not focused on continuous learning and improvement. What you need are proven approaches to applying change at scale, employing the best principles of Lean Startup and Agile and delivering substantial returns that drive growth and innovation across your organisation.
This workshop gives you an opportunity to learn directly from the team who have been deploying a Lean Enterprise approach across several companies including Pearson Inc, a 40,000 person, global education business. The lessons learned from those engagements feed directly into this workshop, enabling you to kick off and significantly accelerate your own organisation's Lean Enterprise transformation.
This workshop is part of our ongoing series where we unpack the why, what and how of a successful transformation program. The team of expert instructors will share with you a range of case studies that highlight some of the challenges present for all companies starting their Lean Enterprise journey. The key lessons learned from Pearson and elsewhere will be dissected into specific and actionable takeaways. We will uncover how the buzzword heavy approaches embodied in Customer Driven development, Lean Startup experimentation, Agile Delivery and Adaptive Portfolio Management can be combined into a single cohesive framework that can be the catalyst to drive powerful shifts in your organisation's culture, processes and outcomes. You will leave the workshop with your first draft of a transformation roadmap ready to stimulate wide-ranging conversations and drive focused action, as soon as you return to your office.
What you will learn:
Why transformation is needed
- Build a shared understanding of the key drivers of disruption
- Identify the burning platform in your business
What effective transformations look like
- Introduce and analyse the core components of Lean Enterprise Transformation: Lifecycle framework, Product Development best practices, Investment Governance, Portfolio Management and Community & Culture.
- Review case studies of transformation journeys inside large enterprises identifying key lessons, strategies, and artefacts
How to deliver effective transformation
- Design a customised roadmap to chart your organisation's path forward - i.e Where to start, what tactics to use?
If you enjoy spending your company's L&D budget to attend dull training sessions where the main feature is an opportunity to check your email in peace, this workshop is not for you.
This will be a fast-paced, highly interactive workshop. This will be a lecture free zone. We will be sharing our stories from the trenches and will be pushing you to share your stories and goals in a safe space.
This workshop will deliver highly focused, actionable outcomes and that will require your full engagement. Don't say we didn't warn you!
A key learning from our experiences has been ensuring that executives and key leaders are the drivers of organisation-wide transformations. This workshop is designed to get Executives and Transformation leaders in organisations of all sizes ready to take on that role. Whether you are just starting to consider building a Lean Enterprise or have already started taking the first steps in your journey, you'll leave this workshop ready to apply Lean Startup and Agile principles at scale to enable your organisational transformation.
