The nature of IT, and its relationship to the enterprise and its customers, is continuously changing. Technology leaders are now being asked to guide their organization through several disruptive transformations, all at once:
– Streamlining and digitizing existing processes,
– Creating new digitally-enabled business models, technology platforms, and innovative new products and services,
– Leveraging Big Data Analytics to gain new insights into customer experience and value.
All the while, leaders must cultivate technology vision, and develop basic technology capabilities in every individual, team, and manager, across the enterprise.
For decades, Lean principles and practices have improved value and performance across virtually every industry. They are the basis of Agile, Scrum, DevOps, and Agile-at-Scale. Now it’s time to focus Lean on the myriad challenges of digital transformation.
In this masterclass, Steve Bell and Karen Whitley Bell, drawing from research, case studies, and practice, will show IT and enterprise leaders and practitioners approaches to apply Lean principles and practices to utilize and improve Big Data value, and accelerate enterprise digital transformation, to:
- Better understand and engage customers
- Identify market trends and consumption patterns, and
- Improve enterprise performance for greater value
We’ll apply this learning through group discussions, hands-on A3 problem solving and other exercises applied to your enterprise’s current state.
In this Masterclass you’ll learn how to:
- Apply Big Data to transform Lean practice
