Experiments with Flow - learn how to get more done by doing less [Workshop]

26th March 2015 in London at Skills Matter

There are 17 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! 2015

SkillsCast coming soon.

We have been conditioned to believe that high utilisation gives us the highest throughput of delivery, this is simply not true. We will prove this through a fun and interactive workshop of experiments.

Quite often we apply established economic trade off’s taken directly from manufacturing to knowledge work without questioning their validity in this different context.

Given that our work systems are complex in nature (as opposed to complicated cynefin fans) the relationships between variables that we can affect are not clear and often contrary to what we might expect.

In this highly interactive and practical session (bring your gym kit…...only joking), Ben and Tom will take you through an experiment driven approach that will highlight why we often need to stop starting and start finishing.

We will uncover relationships between;
1. Local and Global WIP levels
2. Batch size
3. Bottlenecks
4. Utilisation
5. Arrival rate
6. Push versus Pull
7. Quality
