I was fortunate to be a part of our first Value Stream Management Summit, which brought together leading analysts, vendors, and executives from top enterprises. (If you weren’t able to join us, be sure to visit vsmsummit.com to catch the event replay.) Following are a few of my top takeaways from this informative event.
1. Find the Urgency
While much of the world shut down over the past 18 months, some companies thrived. Those that were most successful found new ways to do business by responding to urgent, external forces—and in the process, many grew much more lean, efficient, and effective. Moving forward, teams will need to marshal that same sense of focus, commitment, and urgency, because the need to adapt quickly won’t be dissipating any time soon.
