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.
Two key criteria for user stories to be effective are that they should be small and independent. Small user stories are easier to size and prioritize, and independent stories fit better in sprints due to fewer dependencies. To split user stories into smaller and more digestible pieces, teams have a variety of techniques and criteria available to them.
In a bid to embrace agile trends, organizations are rushing to implement agile practices rather than adopting an agile mindset. In this interactive session, Dr. Helen Uzamere will elucidate the difference between "Being Agile" and implementing agile practices, such as Scrum, XP, Kanban and demonstrate why an agile mindset, not practices, drives successful projects.
A lean, concise, and easy-to-read charter allows the team to focus on delivering within the success criteria. This presentation discusses this new paradigm and impact to organizations, as well as the roll of charters in funding capacity, EPICS and charters, and integrated work teams. Can we deliver value faster if we adopt new business rules regarding the project faster?
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 D (Define).
The Spotify model is a scaled agile approach, which emphasizes on the importance of culture, network, people engagement and contribution.

The daily standup is a key Agile practice. Since the latest Scrum Guide release, it has changed and become less rigid than before, no longer relying on the key three questions. In addition, for teams running Kanban, the daily standup can take on a different form.
Fifty years since the first agile project, Enterprise Agility remains a hot topic and for some, it is a new delivery approach. Started in the late 1970s as an alternative to Lean Six Sigma, Agile became popular in the second decade of the 21st century when the frameworks used by successful small software development team found their way into projects. Possibly because it was successful on a small scale, or due to business involvement in the development of new software solutions, or just because agile has become something that any organization has to have over the last decade, agile “escaped” software development and is now more and more considered as an option for other Business Teams. "Scaling" Agile beyond software development is a challenge because most popular agile frameworks are conceived by software developers for software developers. In many cases, "scaling" is done by returning to Lean Six Sigma practices - the very approach that Agile tried to improve or even replace. Kaizen is a Lean Six Sigma practice used with great success in manufacturing. In this webinar, the author will share his practical experience with Kaizen in manufacturing as well as software development projects.
