When: Wednesday February 21, 2018 6:30-8:30 pm Est

Toyota is the birthplace of Lean and Agile. Many of the concepts and principles of Agile can be traced back to how Toyota develops and manufactures cars. However it turns out that the further away a department in the company is from the manufacturing line, the less Lean and Agile it is!
Certified Enterprise Agile Coach Dan LeFebvre will share his experiences over the past year working with Toyota, specifically Dan will described how he and his team from Scrum Inc. has helped an IT department of over 4500 people in Toyota Motors of North America (TMNA) get back to their Lean and Agile roots.
What you will learn about in this presentation includes:
The struggles that lead to the realization that TMNA were not as Lean as they thought
The approaches Dan and his consulting team used to meet these struggles head on
Some early successes that have resulted from this ongoing transformation
