Do you want to improve end-to-end feature lead-time? It is not a question of working harder. It is a question of first removing the feature wait time, the red bricks.
If you would build an end-to-end timeline for your features using red, yellow and green LEGO bricks. Where:
* Red = Non value adding waiting time
* Yellow = Non value adding activates required due to how work is organized
* Green = Value adding activities of real customer value
How would your feature end-to-end timeline look like? In most cases, you will have less than 20% green and yellow bricks and more the 80% red bricks.
In this session, you will be see how flow efficiency can be drastically improve in two concrete examples from two different domains.
First, you will see how a Swedish Breast Cancer Clinic drastically improved flow efficiency and reduced patient wait time by focusing on removing the red and yellow bricks.
In the second example, you will see how a Product Development Test Organization reduced lead-time and created time for improvements by focusing on improving flow efficiency.
We will take a close look at the three laws that define the performance of all processes:
* Little’s Law
* Law of bottlenecks
* Law of variation
By understanding how the three laws governs the performance of your processes, we can look at ways to improve your flow efficiency.
**When time is gone, it is gone. Time to start removing the red and yellow bricks**
