Presentation: "Driving a Kaizen Culture using regular Operations Reviews"

Track: Lean and Kanban / Time: Friday 16:50 - 17:50 / Location: Falconer Salen

Both of David J. Anderson's books have featured chapters describing the use and value of regular operations reviews of the technology development organization. David has described operations review as the keystone or lynch pin of a Kanban initiative to drive the evolution of a Lean organization. Despite this it remains the least often implemented of the Kanban practices. This talk will present the why, what and how of operations reviews and advocate for their greater use as part of a Lean initiative and focal point for creating a Kaizen culture within your business.
