About this course

Introduction to Agile Thinking Workshop

If you’re focussed on a particular project or already have some awareness of Lean transformation and want to refresh or top up selected knowledge, then our modular one-day workshops offer a fast and scalable solution to improving the understanding required to support continuous improvement strategies, with contemporary Lean thinking for cultural transformation.

These workshops will provide practical insights and examples on selected specialised topic areas. They are designed to build focus around specific activities that encourage collaboration and active problem-solving from standardisation and routine to asset care and cultural change. At the heart of all our Lean workshops are the fundamental goals around eliminating waste, identifying value, the creation of flow and establishing pull, through leader standard work, process discipline, accountability, and visual management that advocates a coaching culture striving for continuous improvement.

Workshop covers Lean vs Agile and how to maximise resources intelligently, and the importance using the right data to deploy changes fast. Promotes the attributes required of Agile leadership, how to drive realtime intercompany cooperation and use supporting tools such as Kanban to ensure accountability. Practitioners will outline representative steps for managing workflows including how projects can be broken down in to scrum sprints, setting goals, planning, review and execution.
