May 7 – Geneva – Lean Projects Start with a Lean Backlog

24 avr

In order to stay competitive, product development organizations must deliver more valuable products to the market faster.

wikipedia leanThe failure of some organizations to get the right product fast enough has sparked (a much needed and long lasting) debate to find a « perfect » innovation process that could develop any product faster and better than anyone else. New project management methods such as the lean startup, SCRUM, lean product development and so fourth make fairly similar promises to fix very difficult challenges.

The truth is rather that there is no quick fix to deliver great products in such a short time. Instead, successful companies use pragmatic approaches where the solution varies greatly depending on their specific context. One trend places the backlog in the center. It has been proven that, if properly adapted to the context, lean backlog management together with actionable metrics can make a major impact on project success.

The presentation Lean Projects start with Lean Backlog will have three parts:

a summary of some theory behind a great backlog, a walkthrough of two cases from very different organizations with similar lessons learned and finally our suggestions on how to get started with lean backlog management and actionable metrics.

May 5 – Luxembourg – Digitisation and electronic archiving: a real transformation project

23 avr

Paper still has an important role in our society !

learnPaper is still considered by many companies as the main communication mean (internal and external).

Digitisation and electronic archiving are tools that may seem out of reach to organisations due to their perceived complexity for handling sensitive information (contracts or records). However, digital revolution through a transformation can happen, especially now that the government wants to create the « European Safe of digital data ».

This event aims at presenting the “project management” perspective of such transformations through case studies and discussions.

Lean Startup is a methodology for launching new product and services in a minimum amount of time by experimenting with potential customers right from the beginning and by quickly identifying and eliminating the most riskiest parts in an associated business model. Lean Startup has it’s origins in the Silicon Valley tech incubator and accelerator scene and has quickly spread around the world. It is also more and more used in larger organizations as well as in non-tech sectors as an innovation method for new products and services.

Sylvain Cottong will give an outline of the Lean Startup methodology illustrated by some examples.
