Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata
Hanson Inc

"Imagine you have a way of managing that generates initiative among everyone in the organization to adapt, improve, and keep the organization moving forward. Imagine that although this method is different from how we currently manage, it is ultimately not difficult to understand.” (Mike Rother, Toyota Kata, 2010)

The previous quote encapsulates well the mantra of the Improvement and Coaching Kata described by Mike Rother in his book Toyota Kata.

On Tuesday, we will be engaging in a fast paced exercise to better understand the iterative process of improvement, and the supporting management techniques. While the PMI strives for absolutes and definitive project plans, there are often times when the solution is not known. Tuesday will give attendees a chance to practice a scientific method of problem solving, moving projects forward when the path is not as clear.

The Western Lake Erie Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI®) is the organization of choice for project management professionalism.

PMI WLEC: Agile opportunities, challenges and pitfalls
Hanson Inc

Presenter: Debbie Matthews is a successful project manager with experience working for Fortune 500 companies, the United States Air Force, Department of Defense and small consulting firms. Debbie served for seven years on the board of the Project Management Institute (PMI) Western Lake Erie Chapter (WLEC) in the roles of VP of Finance, President Elect, President and Past President. She became Project Management Professional (PMP) certified in 2005, and Ford Agile Practitioner certified in 2014. Her project experience includes the IT portion of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, IT infrastructure, application development, shop floor automation, real estate renovation, space surveillance and most recently mobile app development.

Topic: In 2015, Debbie had the opportunity to work with an Agile Coach to slow walk a project from the traditional waterfall process (Requirements, Design, Development, Test and Deploy on a large scale over a long time) to an Agile process (short sprints or iterations and frequent releases of small pieces of scope). Earlier this year, she had the opportunity to be tasked with building an extreme Agile project team within the digital Marketing space at Ford Motor Company. In October 2016, Debbie was sought out to combine her experience from those two activities to take a large in-flight global mobile app program and transition it to Agile without slowing the team down. This has been a fast paced, exciting effort that is still a work in progress. Debbie will share a high level description of her three experiences, discussing areas such as the process, management, the team, external partners and tools. After sharing her opportunities, challenges and pitfalls, she will encourage an open dialogue to allow others to share experiences and challenges. This will be a casual, fun and interactive evening.

User Insights for the Whole Team
BGSU Overman Hall

Registration is now open for "User Insights for the Whole Team: Stop guessing what users need". Seats are limited, so be sure to register if you plan to attend!

Lean, agile, and startup processes emphasis creating customer value and satisfying user needs, both expressed an unexpressed. How do you get valid customer and user insights to guide decision making?

On April 12th, Darren Kall, a user experience design and strategy expert based in Dayton, will show us the value of direct contact with real users.

  • Learn the personal and corporate value of direct contact with real users
  • Recognize opportunities to connect with users and learn how to engage with them
  • Become empowered to put these techniques into practice and be confident you can do them well
  • Get resources about where to learn more so you can continue to get insights from users

These user experience techniques work for all varieties of products and services. You can apply them if your users are consumers, employees (for enterprise applications), residents (for government services), patrons (for a library), donors (for non-profits), and for many other audiences. It does not matter if the product or service is a website, mobile app, complex enterprise dashboard, or museum exhibit.

This talk will be useful for all members of a product team, not just for user experience specialists. Software developers, visual designers, project managers, business analysts, marketing leads and other members of IT/product teams are encouraged to attend. The whole team should be empowered with these techniques and have the opportunity to learn as much as they can about users. The better the team’s insights are about users, the more successful the product will be.

This event is a being organized BGSU ACM & Tech Toledo. Attending groups include Toledo Web Professionals & PMI WLEC.
