RefineM Training

Lean/Agile For IT and Business

Please contact us if you would like to set up a customized Lean/Agile training course in your city or at your corporate site.

Duration: 2 or 3 days

Description: Did you know that you can achieve 15-40% efficiency gains and cost savings in 4-8 weeks using Lean/Agile? And that most of the time, these gains also lead to generating additional revenue? Other organizations and teams have experienced this phenomenon, and you can too if you invest a day in learning how.

In RefineM’s Lean/Agile for IT and Business Processes Workshop, you will learn about process flows and optimization from an IT and business standpoint using concepts such as value stream mapping, WIP limits, Kanban boards, and Agile. You and your team will identify areas and themes of improvement, organize them into themes, visualize the current process, and build a Kanban board to identify opportunities for immediate improvement. You will leave the course with the ability to optimize and improve upon critical business and technical processes demonstrated by key metrics. By implementing Lean/Agile training and process improvement, you could increase business efficiency by as much as 15-40% within 4-8 weeks.

The benefits of the workshop are increased exponentially when more than one individual from your team participates. This allows you to not only learn the Lean/Agile concepts but apply those to your specific IT/business processes during the workshop and walk away with a value stream map and Kanban board that you can start using right away.

Course Objectives: After completing the course, you will be able to
  • Optimize workflows for key IT/business processes using value stream mapping (VSM).
  • Use Kanban boards to find bottlenecks in the process, resolve them quickly and improve the flow.
  • Start continuous improvement of key IT/business processes using Lean/Agile practices.

Who Should Attend: This course is ideal for process owners and leadership team members as well as team members who play a role in an IT or business process. This course will also benefit business analysts and application architects who build new processes and products.
