  • The inside-out perspective of value creation from the businesses value-streams

Who has heard talks on business transformation that are (too) long on theory and short on practical application?  Anyone observe the difficulties of applying lean production and management systems in an IT environment?  We often hear about frameworks for organizing thoughts around transformation, but not enough about a process from which to act, and many times the suggested methods fail to reflect the realities of producing and managing Information Technology services.  Join Tom Paider, co-author of The Lean IT Field Guide: A Roadmap for Your Transformation, and Peg Pennington of The Ohio State University Center for Operational Excellence, as they facilitate a workshop addressing this urgent need for the IT community and the businesses that depend on them.  Workshop participants will learn proven methods for creating and sustaining a true lean IT workplace.

12:30 pm - 2:00 pm C10:A continuous improvement case study: How one organization sustained continuous improvement and grew their bottom line by 40 – 50% by empowering the points of value creation
Continuous improvement efforts and initiatives fail far more frequently than they should.  Even those with everything going for them (executive buy-in, proper funding, requisite expertise, etc.) can fail, and even the “successes” sometimes cannot be sustained.  Why?  
Salient Management Company believes the answer is to empower the point of value creation.  In this workshop, we will uncover the obstacles and challenges to sustaining continuous improvement.   We will highlight the enablers to overcome these challenges and capitalize on the opportunities that exist in a company’s culture, illuminate where culture actually resides and describe how best to cultivate a culture that can guarantee not only the success of an OpEx initiative, but the sustained performance improvements every company strives for.   We will end the workshop reviewing a case study on how one organization’s success with the model improved its bottom line by 40-50% revenue growth.
