Lean Management is about achieving maximum performance from excellent processes, led by existing operational staff, with a long-term perspective.

Agile is about improving time to market, perceived product value and team engagement by bringing the worlds of development, operations and customer needs closer together through short learning loops.

Initially designed for an application to a software environment, we have developed an Agile expertise coupled with Lean for an application of the method to a complex hardware and system environment as well as to the transformation of business organizations.

Our expertise of more than 10 years of support for the major players in the industry is based on an involvement at the origin of international referents. This expertise has been packaged into an action training module in order to deliver a concrete result quickly.
