Most large scale organizations are designed on the overarching theme of local efficiency and local optimization. Local optimization focus can be seen at all levels and areas in such organizations right from hiring, approach to funding new initiatives, the way people are promoted to higher ranks, etc. Effects of such behavior is visible through organizational silos, hand-offs of partly finished work products among groups of SMEs, single function roles (such as Analyst, QA, etc.), everyone being busy, and communication barriers and distance from real user/customer challenges.
In this workshop, we'll focus on the Software Product Development area of the organizations, identify local optimization, expose the underlying lean wastes and list approaches to optimize the whole system and improve organizational agility.
Kamlesh Ravlani will help attendees see the prevailing local optimization by dissecting planning, analysis and design, and programming areas and will facilitate activities where the participants expose the underlying lean wastes.
Equipped with the knowledge of prevailing lean wastes and resulting local optimization, attendees will learn couple of approaches based on Systems Thinking that solely focus on customer value and remove lean wastes resulting in System Optimization. Attendees will also learn that System optimization also triggers and necessitates re-designing the organization to move away from local optimization in the benefit of the whole system optimization and allowing the organization to be more responsive and agile.
PS: As a reference, Kamlesh Ravlani will bring additional reference material and books for attendees to become aware and later refer to - if interested to learn further on this topic.
