How Supply Chains Can Be More Resilient by Practicing Lean, Green & Agile Methodologies in a Post Pandemic Era
Supply Chains are the back bone of economies across the world. At the onset of COVID-19 pandemic, we have witnessed how the supply chains collapsed in a short span of time leading the world to a disastrous condition. Many experts termed this phenomenon as Black Swan, nevertheless the world needs to formulate robust strategies in order that we do not get into this disaster in future again. Question is how do we make our Supply Chains resilient to absorb future shocks? My research undertaken on this subject has dealt with various Lean, Green and Agile Methodologies to recommend a frame work which may rescue the future supply chains from the ill effects which the COVID 19 Pandemic brought to the world. This session shall address the importance of Lean, Green and Agile to bring resilience for global supply chains. It shall elaborate on the effectiveness of Lean, Green and Agile methodologies through our work employing validated Research Methodologies during the time of the pandemic. It shall also enumerate on how Lean, Green and Agile methodologies can be suitably adapted for revival of Supply Chains in post- pandemic era.
Over the past few years, many organizations that manufacture tangible products have attempted Agile approaches for new product development. Unfortunately, many of these processes fail to deliver the expected results in speed-to-market and flexibility. Yet, returning to a full waterfall process remains bureaucratic and intractable with remote and virtual teams. The solution is a hybrid agile-waterfall process. In this session, we will identify various processes and systems for new product development (NPD). You will learn about two approaches to hybrid product development that can enhance the culture of innovation in your organization. We will provide examples of companies that adopted different processes to add flexibility while minimizing risk. Comparing and contrasting a non-profit using WAGILE Product Development and a manufacturer using Lean NPD, you will understand how culture and risk tolerance impact the choice of an effective product development process.
Project management in any organization rolls up to leadership visibility for strategic management of new products or services. At the bottom line, a project manager's steering to success is the key to each measurable element. The modern era's projects are more complex today and we are required to navigate through lots of challenges such as; people management, schedule, technical etc. using our leadership & communication skills. Those are our necessary means of navigation though. However, we may need to identify a "what if-scenario" to be able to enable everyone to realize Project Management needs, organization goals & how everyone (internal stakeholders) can better involve and contribute for the success of each project. My experience, thoughts and ideas come from weak-matrix organization particularly where a Project Manager has less authority over resources and needs more efforts to form, push & maintain a good balance between different stakeholders throughout the process. My idea of "project management for all" could help realize how a project goal delivers values & builds images across the regions.

Although they may appear to be competitors, Agile and Lean Six Sigma have the same objective: supporting the organization’s priorities by achieving customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma has a very mature approach to process improvement: DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control). This approach can certainly be used for a successful Agile transformation. The webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects with a focus on M (Measure).
