Fix It! Utilizing Lean Process Improvement to get Value Fast from Badly Implemented Systems

Business Acumen

Join us at Vintage Brewery on Whitney Way, Thursday, September 21st!

Elizabeth Hetrick ERP, PMO Manager at Exact Sciences will discuss how you, as a, PM can be a superhero to your organization.

Many Organizations find themselves, at one time or another, stuck with a badly implemented system. The system either doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do, or it does it so badly that teams are finding ways around using the system and refusing to adopt new processes. For many Application Owners and PMs the question of what to do with the system tends to come down to “Do we re-implement or buy something else?” But there is another, less costly option, Fix it!

This session will focus on how you, as a PM, can be a superhero to your organization. By utilizing Lean Process Improvement techniques teams can identify system issues quickly and improve the system. This session will focus on a real-world case study where Exact Sciences utilized Lean + Agile to improve our Learning Management System, significantly increasing our user satisfaction and adoption rates while reducing the number of incidents and tickets for the system.

Some key takaways are:

  • Modify the traditional Lean Process Improvement model to be more applicable to IT
  • Techniques to adapt specific lean tools to be more IT-centric
  • How to tailor the Lean process improvement model to fit within an Agile Scrum model
