    Traditional management has failed. To deal with a radically different marketplace and workplace, today the whole organization must be focused on creating a stream of additional value to customers through continuous innovation and delivering it sooner. In short, delight the customer. This reinvention of management reflects in part an application of Agile/Scrum thinking to the whole organization.

    Drawing on his award-winning book, The Leader's Guide to Radical Management (Jossey-Bass, 2010), Steve Denning shows how the reinvention of management involves five fundamental shifts in terms of the firm’s goal, the role of managers, the way work is coordinated, the shift from value to values and the shift in communications shift from command to conversation.

    In my efforts of bringing Continuous Improvement to the sales and marketing arena, I have found the ability to share and create knowledge with your customer has become the strongest marketing tool possible. The Business901 Podcast has allowed me to be at the leading edge of some of the latest thinking. Find out in my presentation how Service Design, Design Thinking, Appreciative Inquiry, Lean Standard Work and the Customer Value Plugin for the Business Model Canvas are being applied to Lean.

    Ever feel your organization is trying to run up a down escalator which is ever speeding up? Well, it’s probably because it is. Relentless changes in technology, competition and market conditions – just to name three driving forces – are making it ever more difficult to make good decisions concerning what risks to manage and what opportunities to pursue next. Just as you think you have something under control, something comes along and turns everything upside down.

    In this talk, Robert Charette will describe his three dimensional risk escalator or helix to help understand the myriad of dynamic forces acting on (and inside) organizations today, and how instead of merely reacting to them, an organization embracing lean software and systems development can manipulate these forces to their advantage and profit.

    Modeling and Monte-carlo simulation allows rapid (and repetitive) "what-if" risk analysis to be performed on proposed or ongoing Lean/Kanban projects. This analysis leads to reliably forecasting delivery dates, cost, staffing-requirements, and informed risk management. Learn how to quickly find options that minimize cost and delivery time, whilst maximizing revenue for a project and portfolio.
    Modeling and simulation gives you a platform for experimentation before and during a project. Modeling your development process and project allows you to simulate possible delivery date/cost outcomes 1000's of times, and then compare these results to quickly find those model inputs that have the greatest impact on a final result (cost, date, or cycle-time); and then manage your project accordingly.
    This talk both introduces the concepts and then discusses through detailed examples, how to answer important questions like:
    1. What is the impact of outsourcing my QA process? Is it cost effective?
    2. What is the cost impact because of high defect rates during development?
    3. What is the delivery date impact of losing a key staff member? What staff skills do I need to hire next?

    By the end of this session you will understand the capabilities of Monte-carlo simulation and modeling a Kanban project and be in a position to embrace these techniques in your own projects and teams.

    Resources required to execute Lean programs and projects compete with the myriad of other requests for resources executives weigh and decide upon on a regular basis. Though the scope of the "Lean Lense" has traditionally been on improvement, Lean programs and projects can contribute to enterprise value by resolving existing problems, mitigating risks, and capturing improvement opportunities. This presentation details how this broader scoping of Lean initiatives coupled with an enterprise metric of value creation and protection enables Lean programs and projects to appropriately compete with all other requests for the enterprise's limited resources--staff time and dollars.
