Introductory lecture / Workshop

Acceleration of projects based on a practical example from your industry.

Organisations who are already successful in their existing project work can use the 10 acceleration drivers to achieve further significant reductions in lead times. Studies have established that the reliability of adherence to deadlines can be increased to over 95% and that lead times can be shortened by up to 25% if agile methods, critical chain and lean project management are used.

Using practical case studies, you’ll get to know the root causes of common problems and thus learn how to accelerate your project work and find answers to the following:

  • How can we ensure that managers are not constantly changing their priorities?
  • Is our organisational structure compatible with project work?
  • How can we achieve transparency across all projects and people?
  • Do we work to quality standards or to schedule?
  • How can we improve cooperation within and across departments?

Duration: 3-hour introductory lecture in workshop style, 1-hour discussion and adaptation of the acceleration drivers to your value chain

Focused work and acceleration of development projects

Organisations who are already successful in their existing project work can use the 10 acceleration drivers to achieve further significant reductions in lead times. Studies have established that the reliability of adherence to deadlines can be increased to over 95% and that lead times can be shortened by up to 25% if agile methods, critical chain and lean project management are used.

Using practical case studies, you’ll get to know the root causes of common problems and thus learn how to accelerate your project work and find answers to the following:

  • How can we ensure that not all development tasks are assigned top priority?
  • Which metrics and incentive systems make sense in the context of development / design
  • How can we achieve transparency across all projects and people
  • What are agile procedures? How can we use them efficiently?
  • What does the ideal staffing of development projects look like?

Duration: 3-hour introductory lecture in workshop style, 1-hour discussion and adaptation of the acceleration drivers to your value chain

Determining your organisation's starting situation

An analysis will be carried out to determine the root causes of issues. You can then release the “handbrake” to get your products on the market faster again.

If you find yourself discussing “symptoms” in virtually every meeting – too late, too expensive, complaints, reworking and whatever other issues might come up – it makes sense to have a neutral expert lay out the root causes. This gives you the opportunity to eliminate them together.

Structured interviews with representative employee groups in your company Online employee survey with analysis and benchmarking against other organisations in similar situations Mapping of the value creation process based on a sample project order.

Result:
