CIOs and IT leaders in regions and industries that are struggling economically are being told to cut the IT budget by 15%, but still get critical digital business initiatives implemented.

Accelerating the move to enterprise agile is a high-risk, but high-reward, way to do both.

Discussion Topics:

  • How to use headcount reductions as a “burning platform” to accelerate an enterprise agile transformation
  • How to redeploy IT positions into agile teams
  • How to trim the scope of every delivery to the smallest change that provides business value

It has been repeatedly observed that Lean and Agile, being two parallel streams of development, are both affecting the shape organizations are taking.

These two paths intersect at several points and many researchers have already used them together, at times for specific purposes of organizational performance enhancement and continuous improvement.

From Organizational Project Management perspective, PMI has recently embraced agility in project management and have natural snowball effect on program and portfolio management.

While we are discussing Organizational Agility on one end, and impacting Organizational Project Management on other,This session will introduce the natural complimentary fusion of agile and lean.

The focus of this webinar is multi-fold:

  • Relates the organizational advantages of both Lean and Agile
  • Highlights the similarities and differences between the two
  • Shows how Lean Agile they can be removed or even synergized
  • Shows how can Lean Agile best be unified bringing in benefits of both the streams.

While agile focuses more on enhancing project management, lean is more inclined towards process improvement, which in a sense, has a role within the project as well as the whole organization.

This is because of their origins, lean being originated from manufacturing industry and agile from software industry.

Advantages of both can be applied on all kinds of organizations and all types of projects, forces us to deliberate more on experimenting with various combinations and areas from strategy and business to organizational project management.

This session will conceptualize a Lean-Agile (LeAgile) Organization taking both directions, “Organizational Agility” and “Lean Organizations”.

Live Webinar February 21st, 2017 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU free
Provider: O’Reilly

Portfolio mapping requires taking an end-to-end view of the life-cycle of initiatives in your organization, but using the same strategy, practices, and processes across the entire portfolio will result in negative outcomes and results.

Barry O’Reilly explores how the world’s largest organizations develop better strategies, information gathering, and decision making across their portfolios to drive improved business results and customer satisfaction.

Drawing on real-world examples, Barry traces successful strategies across four main domains, explaining why thriving companies:

  • Explore early-stage initiatives with high degrees of uncertainty that are bets for the future.
  • Exploit initiatives that have achieved product-market fit and that the organization wants to grow and scale.
  • Sustain initiatives that have become repeatable and scalable business models, products, or services that drive the majority of revenue for the organization.
  • Retire initiatives that are long lived or no longer beneficial (or even limiting) to the organization’s future success or strategy. Initiatives that do not achieve desired outcomes in any domain should be killed and their investment transferred to other initiatives.

By the end of this webcast, you’ll understand why and how high-performance organizations focus on building capability to continuously move initiatives through the model from Explore to Retire.

Presenter: Barry O’Reilly  (LinkedIn profile@BarryOReilly) is a frequent keynote speaker, writer and blogger on industry topics related to innovation, organizational leadership and strategy. Barry is Founder and CEO of ExecCamp (ExecCamp Linkedn profile, @ExecCamp) the entrepreneurial experience for executives, and Antennae, it’s mission to help technology led businesses innovate at scale.

Are You Lean?

Regardless of what industry you’re in, today’s large companies share some remarkably similar characteristics. We live and die by these common denominators:

  •  Heavy reliance on technology, IT teams, and software
  • Complex, unpredictable organizational dynamics
  • Siloed departments that suffer from lack of communication
  • Difficulty understanding or predicting what customers and users want
  • Constantly changing and uncertain marketing conditions

In the middle of this daunting mix, we are called upon to constantly innovate or fall behind.

But how?

Is it even possible to repeatedly and methodically achieve this mythical “innovation” that everyone talks about?

Chris contends that it is.

Chris will introduce you to the following:

  • Lean: what is it?
  • A brief history of lean management principles
  • Lean thinking
  • Lean applied in today’s professions
    • IT,
    • Development,
    • DevOps,
    • Project Management
  • Lean as a vehicle for value creation

Once the organization has gotten beyond the harvesting “low hanging fruit” common with the beginning of a continuous improvement initiative, improvement efforts may require more sophistication.

Lean Six Sigma, the marriage of the tools and concepts in Lean and Six Sigma, bridge that gap!

This session will introduce you to Statistical Process Control (SPC) and Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA), two of tools used to dial in value and further eliminate wastes when initial methods no longer provide gains and data or data capture is present or available.

Join Elena Gilbert in this session for an excellent introduction to statistical process control & measurement systems analysis.
