A 45 minute Case Study by:

Dimitar Karaivanov


About this Case Study

We’ve all heard great stories about huge corporations that went through hell to achieve agility. Typically, the acting storytellers are the consultants who were involved in the process. We rarely have access to the 'first-person perspective' of the actual team in the trenches, which means we might only be getting part of the transformation story. Are all teams ready to leave waterfall behind? Do they eagerly embrace the new methods?

When there's support from top management, change can happen. However, it comes at a given cost and being prepared for it. This session presents a step-by-step lean kanban transformation case study through the eyes of a middle manager and his senior vice president. It aims to offer an alternative, yet complementary perspective to that of the consultant by covering a wide array of challenges at various levels of the organisation and exploring some real-life solutions to real-life problems. This company has achieved amazing results in the past couple of years since adopting lean and kanban in all of its departments.
