New Workshop by the Lean Enterprise Institute Teaches a Robust, Innovative Framework for Developing Great Products and Services Consistently

Share Article

The Designing the Future workshop, based on the powerful framework of Lean Product and Process Development (LPPD), aligns the entire enterprise to accelerate time to market, slash design rework, reduce development team frustration, and deliver what the customer wants and needs in new products and services.

LPPD dramatically improves development of new products and services.

Using the Lean Product and Process Development framework companies develop better products and services now and into the future, and better futures for themselves, their customers, employees, and all stakeholders.

The ability to consistently create successful new products and services is a company’s most powerful competitive advantage. But many – if not most -- companies struggle to do development well. Common problems include: Products and services don’t live up to customer expectations; projects go over budget due to late (and costly) changes; value-stream stakeholders aren’t effectively integrated into the development process; projects take too long or create difficulties at launch.

In Designing the Future: A Lean Product Development Immersive Learning Experience, experienced coaches will introduce attendees to the powerful framework of Lean Product and Process Development (LPPD) that creates a robust innovation system. Using LPPD, companies develop better products and services now and into the future, and better futures for themselves, their customers, employees, and all stakeholders.

Workshop benefits include:

  • Learning LPPD's guiding principles by applying them in a simulated product development process from product to launch.
  • Discovering how to align the organization on what the product must be for both the customer and the business.
  • Understanding how to manage development work visually in an "- obeya" room for effective and timely collaboration.
  • Creating a plan to improve their development systems.
  • Acquiring new skills that position developers for further success.

The first of six two-hour sessions, conveniently spread over two weeks, begins July 20, 2021. Registration is open now.
