As the pace of organizational change and complexity accelerates, itâ??s critical that we find a way to move out of the â??Do More with Lessâ? mindset and build our competitive edge at truly doing less to create more time and space for innovation and sustainable value creation.  Itâ??s equally important to understand our unique value proposition and the critical mindset changes that are vital to mastery as an Agile Engineer.  This session will introduce a framework to shatter several paradigms:
From:  â??more is betterâ?Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â  To:   â??less is bestâ?
â??do more with lessâ? â??do less and achieve moreâ?.
â?increased outputâ?Â Â Â Â Â Â  â??decreased output and increased outcomesâ?
This 2-hour highly interactive workshop will introduce some practical tools to create a culture of Value.  We introduce concepts of value drivers which is a technique to clarifying enterprise priorities and provide a clear-line-of-sight to enable everyone in the organization to understand how they create value.  .  Next we will interactively facilitate a deeper  understanding of how to apply these concepts to your organization, develop an Enterprise Value Model and  drill down to one or two of the value drivers and develop value stories and a Value Strategy Map.
This workshop will provide foundational concepts and practical tools to apply immediately in your enterprise to measure and manage an optimum flow of value and make value informed portfolio, program and project level decisions. Weâ??ll wrap the session by exploring how to understand and leverage your unique value proposition.
What can you expect to learn?
�    Understand how moving from a fixed to an agile mindset amplifies the value that Engineers create for an organization
â?¢Â Â   Understand the business case and benefits of creating a culture thatâ??s razor focused on optimizing customer value
�    Learn key building blocks and  management practices that are critical to aligning the organization around a shared focus on value
�    Practical techniques for alignment and clear line of sight on how everyone in the organization and deliver optimal value
�    Understand and explore ways to introduce value modeling, value engineering and value management in your organization
