"Lean Agile 101": Delivering More Value Better & Faster
Aug 26 2013
8:00 AM - 6:00 PM
3840 Paki Ave
Honolulu, HI 96815
First, A Special "Mahalo"...goes out to both Jim Steele, Acting President - International Institute of Business Analysis Hawai'i Chapter (http://hawaii.iiba.org), and to Dale Aiello of the Hawai'i Information Communications and Technology Association (http://www.hicta.org) for answering my call for "kokua!" in pursuit of making this event come to life! Thank you both for your efforts!
Overview Business, Government, and Nonprofits are facing the reality that traditionally rigid and bloated command-and-control hierarchical organizations are rapidly giving way to a more organic, collaborative organizations which sense and rapidly respond to important signals from the market, the environment, investors/funders. Delivering value to customers NOW, PERFECTLY, AND AT LOWER COST is the new paradigm whether you're in a publicly traded company, a government agency, or a nonprofit organization.
What this event is NOT
This event is NOT about "software development" or the "information technology industry". However, these industries and sectors could benefit from this event.
Who should be in the Audience: Senior Managers, Mid-Level Managers, Functional Managers, Portfolio Managers, Program Managers, Project Managers, Technical / Development Team Members, Operational Managers, and Functional Managers, who are in organizations where value delivery scenarios are resource constrained and under high demand to produce value quicker, faster, and perfectly.
What will you get from these sessions and workshop: This full day series of morning sessions and afternoon workshop are designed to:
1. Give you the ability to communicate an understanding of how Lean/Agile can deliver more value in less time and with fewer resources. You will walk away with simple one and two sentence "talking points" which you can convey to your senior management.
2. Take your conversation deeper with knowledge on how Lean Agile Value Delivery streams work. And, how value streams are faster, better, and cheaper than traditional portfolio, program, and project management approaches. You will walk away being able to communicate how a Lean Value Stream delivered with Agile practices works from start to finish.
3. Arm you with practical experience actually using Lean Agile tools and techniques which you can implement immediately on the work you have now to produce demonstrated results. And, you just may have some fun!
You will be able to "talk the talk" and "walk the walk" which can position you and your organization to avert failure, and not only survive...but thrive. Your colleagues will look to you as a thought leader, because you will be.

0900-1015 “Why and How Lean/Agile Delivers Value Faster and Better to your Enterprise”
This 1-hour and 15 minute session will present information which defines the case for utilizing Lean Agile Value Driven Delivery approaches in fast changing "Knowledge Work" environments. An overview of Lean and Agile philosophies derived from established management science is provided in easy to remember and understand "talking points" which can be shared with senior leaders, peers, and team members in "plain English". This session establishes the Enterprise Environmental Factors which are commonly encountered and how a Lean Agile Value Delivery Driven approach to collaborative teamwork can be more effective and efficient than Traditional project management approaches.
1030-1230 “Lean Agile Value Driven Delivery from A-Z”
This 2-hour session will present a “blueprint” for a Lean Agile Value Driven Delivery approach for “Knowledge Work” organizations. Basic theory of the Agile “Scrum” approach, Roles, Events, and Artifacts will be presented as well as identification and description of specific Tools and Techniques which support individuals and interactions in pursuit of “working” and valuable products and services. The session will highlight the aspects of the Scrum approach which support both “Doing Agile” and “Being Agile”. This session is intended as an introductory presentation for audiences which are relatively unfamiliar with Agile and Scrum.
1300-1700 “Practical Lean/Agile Workshop”
This 2-hour session will be a “hands on”, interactive workshop where the facilitator will walk participants through the experience of initiating a “project” through the end of a first “iteration” where a “potentially shippable product” increment is delivered. The session will apply the Agile “Scrum” approach to the previous session's presented Roles, Events, and Artifacts, and participants will leave with examples of tools and real experience with techniques. It is very strongly suggested that participants have attended the previous session and/or are relatively familiar with with Agile and Scrum.
1700-1900 Informal Q&A and Networking
This will be a period of time where an open, collaborative sharing of questions and answers can be enjoyed, as well as the opportunity to connect with new colleagues as you go forward “Doing Agile and Being Agile”. There is no charge for this session. All are invited to attend. Pricing
