    BERTEIG Real Agility Series: Expose Dependencies and Create Opportunity to Deliver Faster!

    22 MAY 2020 - Online - Jerry Doucett

    FREE! Register Now

    Despite a team's best efforts to improve they are often limited by their ability to deliver faster. This is because most teams are part of a larger interdependent system and it is often the hand-offs between teams that cause the most friction and delays and not the work occurring within teams.

    In this webinar we will leverage the Kanban practice of Visualizing Work. We will also share a few rudimentary techniques for un-hiding the delays between teams that often contribute to slowing down delivery. Once these impediments are exposed teams may begin problem solving and building strategies to tackle these delays.

    The goal of this webinar is to create opportunity to improve delivery speed and customer response rates. A secondary goal is to help attendees become more aware of the larger organizational system they work within and how to expose and tackle dependencies within that system.
