Wednesday & Thursday

16th & 17th September 2015

8.30am to 5pm

Through experiential exercises, lectures and facilitated Q&A, you will learn how to:

  • identify the six ways that queues cause economic damage
  • use batch size reduction and WIP constraints to improve flow
  • create fast feedback loops to increase quality and efficiency
  • reduce the economic cost of variability without stifling innovation
  • develop a step-by-step implementation plan to incorporate lean principles into your own development process

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This program is designed for managers who currently play a role in product development. It will be particularly useful to companies that are reaching the point of diminishing returns using conventional approaches to product development and lead product development. It is preferred that participants have a basic understanding of lean techniques and at least 5 years of experience in product development. Attendees should bring a calculator, since the course will involve some light calculations. The techniques covered are general methods of analysis rather than industry specific rules. Just the way physics applies to both large and small ones, the methods used in this course can be applied in a wide variety of industries.
