How do you deliver a big policy outcome that normally take 6 months when you only have weeks?
An early election was called and we faced having to develop two sets of a comprehensive policy documents -- the red book (left-wing) and the blue book (right-wing) -- to brief an incoming government in 8 weeks. We were caught by surprise, the normal lead time were gone, and news about policy commitments came faster from TV and social media than traditional internal sources. This was a non software team in the business area who hadn't done Agile before however we felt given the time frames, it was the best way to approach for such a high profile project.
Come and learn about and application of Lean Kanban and how we delivered the outcome through:
  • gaining active and early engagement with the executives
  • team design in non-software environment
  • limiting waste and duplication
  • visualising flow and transparency of work in progress

Learning Outcomes:
  • - Use of Agile techniques in a Non ICT policy setting
  • - How to egage executives to adopt a "leaders first" mindset to allow leaders to truly drive the change and develop a culture for high performance
  • - Understanding of Lean/Kanban approach for non software teams to focus on delivery and optimising flow of work to deliver within a short timeframe
