Lean/Agile for IT and Business with Narendra (NK) Shrivastava


Topics: Business Skill Enhancement | Strategic Planning and Implementation | Agile | Resource Optimization Technique

Did you know that you can achieve 15-40% efficiency gains and cost savings in 4-8 weeks using lean/agile? And that most of the time, these gains also lead to generating additional revenue? Other organizations and teams have experienced this phenomenon, and you can too if you invest 2 days in learning how.

In this Lean/Agile for IT and Business seminar, you will learn about process flows and optimization from an IT and business standpoint using concepts such as value stream mapping, WIP limits, Kanban boards, and agile. You and your team will identify areas and themes of improvement, organize them into themes, visualize the current process, and build a Kanban board to identify opportunities for immediate improvement. You will leave the course with the ability to optimize and improve upon critical business and technical processes demonstrated by key metrics. By implementing lean/agile training and process improvement, you could increase business efficiency by as much as 15-40% within 4-8 weeks.

The benefits of the seminar are increased exponentially when more than one individual from your team participates. This allows you to not only learn the lean/agile concepts but apply those to your specific IT/business processes during the seminar and walk away with a value stream map and Kanban board that you can start using right away.
