Limited Capacity seats available

The next generation of Lean Methods, such as Kanban, have provided a platform for continuous improvement and constant learning. The thinking behind these techniques promotes an organizational structure that is radically different than traditional perspectives allow.

By and large, organizational design thinking has not kept up. Current Org design initiatives often result in optimizing a highly hierarchical, specialist soloed, command and control structure. Lean, Kanban and Agile change agents struggle with those responsible for refreshing the org design.

In this workshop Jeff Anderson will facilitate an organizational design methods that allows participants to define an organizational structure that promotes service oriented flow across both cross functional teams and share service areas. Participants will learn how to design a value network by using concepts found in traditional value stream mapping, along with symbols used to represent concepts from Kanban, Product Flow, and successful large scale agile deployments.

Participants will build a real org structure model that covers the following:
- Shaping a catalog of demand profiles
- Defining service oriented value streams
- Collecting capabilities into cross functional value centres, shared service centres, or traveller pools
- Connecting centres through one or more linking traveller patterns
- Adding higher order structure by grouping centres into Domains of Intent
- providing governance through set up of Guardian centres, and Communities of Practice

This session promises to be a hands on, in depth session where attendees will be able to develop a real world example of organization structure designed to improve agility in their context.
