Lean Management

The Lean Management Workshop is a practical, hands-on workshop designed to help you apply Lean principles to software product planning and delivery.

  • Achieve better results with a focus on value, throughput and continuous improvement.
  • Improve operational efficiency: continually identify and shed waste from your products, processes and teams.
  • Increase execution and delivery speed by focusing on single-piece flow and limiting work-in-process.
  • Become more responsive by using pull systems that reduce queuing and batch sizes.

You will learn essential Lean principles and practices via interactive discussions, simulations and hands-on activities.

Requirements

General Requirements

To ensure a successful class, we require the following facilities:

  • VGA projector (1024x768 minimum)
  • Projector screen
  • Speakers (to connect instructor's machines. Sound should be audible to the whole class)
  • White board
  • Dry erase markers
  • Flip chart and stand
  • Ample room for students in terms of room size and set up (prefer U-Shape seating)
Class Room Setup

To ensure a successful class, we require the following facilities:

  • Preferred arrangement is small round tables with 6-8 people to support small-group discussion
  • Three additional flip-charts with stands (for small-group use)

Once an agreement for the workshop is confirmed, we will work with your designated contact to ensure that the environment is configured properly prior to the workshop.
