Tired of Development Programs that are consistently late, over budget and deliver products with undetected quality problems?
Interested in how Lean Product Development can transform your company?
With our partner Targeted Convergence Corporation we provide services in four critical areas of Lean Product Development:
1) Concepts, Benefits and Methodology
As much as any other transforming technology, Lean Product Development requires understanding and commitment from executive management and key functional areas of the organization.
We provide an introduction to the concepts, benefits and methods with 1-hour, 2-hour, and 3-hour seminars on:
- Learning-First Product Development
- Toyota Product Development
- LAMDA learning
- Set-Based ThinkingTM
- Set-Based ConvergenceTM.
These seminars are intended to demonstrate that Lean Product Development offers an unprecedented opportunity to create a permanent competitive advantage. We often couple the seminar with a half-day session that allows us to get a deeper understanding of your organization so we can make specific recommendations.
Contact us for more information about Seminars for Concepts, Benefits and Methodology for Lean Product Development.
2) Mentoring-Based Training Workshops
Once your company makes a commitment to understand the principles of Learning-First Product Development a logical step is to choose one or two teams to participate in Set-Based ThinkingTM Workshops. These workshops are quite different than traditional classroom training because we quickly get your people working on their real business problems - not fake examples that may not be relevant to your organization. With this approach you'll gain a clear picture of how much your company will benefit from Learning-First and Set-Based development practices. In many cases your people will be able to develop solutions to problems that teams had been working on for months.
After some time practicing Set-Based ThinkingTM, your teams will build up enough concrete, reusable knowledge about their products, customers, and technologies, that they will be able to move to the next step and take our Set-Based ConvergenceTM Workshops.

3) Implementation and Coaching
Some companies find that the training and education provide enough information to move forward at their own pace. However, many firms want to accelerate the transformation process.
Part of what we teach is the power of ongoing mentoring. Eventually your teams and their leadership will develop these abilities, but it takes time to build the skills and to instill a mentoring culture. In the meantime, to help you get quality products out the door faster, we offer coaching services to your leaders as they develop their new mentoring skills. This gives your transformation a jump start, as you are able to leverage our years of experience in mentoring in many different companies and on a wide variety of different problems.

4) Software Solutions
Although not required to realize immediate benefits from our Mentoring Services, most organizations discover that well designed software tools are a way to increase the speed of implementation. We offer a suite of tools developed by Targeted Convergence Corporation designed to enable Set-Based ThinkingTM; and an additional suite of tools designed to enable Set-Based ConvergenceTM.
