We look forward meeting you at the LPPDE North America 2017 - Accelerating Innovation!
In our LPPDE North America 2017 conference in San Jose we will bring together thought leaders engaged in improving how their companies innovate, from the value of the innovation to its time to market. This is the place to go for those interested in cutting edge thinking or application to accelerate innovation. Download our one page flyer or two page flyer to share with your peers!
To enrich your learning experience, you can sign up for pre-conference workshops on September 18, 2017. These sessions typically are in groups of 8-16 people and are highly interactive and tailored to the audience as much as possible. We offer workshops for starters in the Lean Product Development domain as well as for experienced lean practitioners.
Lean Product Development Flow – Don Reinertsen [USD 795 - full day]
Don Reinertsen, author, creator, consultant and R&D guru coined the term “fuzzy front end”. Creator of the Lean Product Development Flow methodology, a management revelation for new product development, Don will be guiding participants on an in-depth journey into creating flow within your R&D engine, so that you can deliver your new products in half the time and with greater quality and features than you thought possible.

Don Reinertsen is Product Development thought leader and author of the “Principles of Product Development Flow,” “Managing the Design Factory” and “Developing Products in Half the Time”.
Lean Innovation Workshop – Norbert Majerus [USD 795 - full day]
You have watched Lean Start Up build fast-learning innovation processes into the software sector, enabling startups to disrupt entire segments of our society. But how do we in the device, services or product universe reliably innovate to disrupt our segments? Norbert Majerus, Lean Champion at Goodyear R&D and Shingo Prize winning author leads an interactive workshop on recreating the fuzzy front end to radically accelerate and deliver more successful products. More info
Although lean has found widespread application in manufacturing and services, there have been very few sustained implementations in R&D and even less in
the innovation creation process. Lean start-up thinking has energized the area of computer applications but the manufacturing innovation lags behind.
The resistance to lean and innovation is unfortunate: the benefits of applying lean principles to innovation or R&D even at the fuzzy front end of the innovation cycle, can be much higher than what has been accomplished in traditional applications, such as manufacturing and services. Benefits include higher agility, more successful new products, better delivery and much higher speed to market.
This workshop focuses on the following subjects:
- Why innovation is important in all industries, services and processes
- The lean principles that take an idea to a successful product
- Examples and case studies of successful implementations
- How to engage the people in the transformation
- Quick learning cycles (agile, scrum)
- Minimum viable products
- Fail fast and often to succeed quickly
Introduction to Lean Product Development – Peter Palmér & Göran Gustafsson [USD 395 - half day morning session]
We have all struggled to get innovations to market on time, on budget and with the features our customers want. Fast, effective, and repeatable innovation is built on key principles. Göran Gustafsson, a leading Lean PD academic at Chalmers University of Technology, and Peter Palmér, Senior Manager in the R&D Way Office at Scania lead a highly interactive introduction to Lean Product Development that shares those principles, and give you hands-on experience with the tools you need to begin building a better innovation engine at your company right now. More info
This half-day workshop is a highly interactive introduction to Lean Product Development and is intended for those needing a broad view of the subject.
We start with a flow simulation to create a common base of understanding.
The teachings of the simulation will be expanded to create an understanding of the Principles of Lean Product Development and how the system works.
Special attention will be devoted to visualization and knowledge management, keys not only to delivering one innovation, but accelerating future innovations that will follow.
- Experience what the Lean Product Development system is like through simulation
- Learn the basic elements of the Lean Product Development system
- Understand the differences between principles and methods & tools as applied in a Product Development setting
- Increase your knowledge of Lean Product Development
- Prepare you to be able to take in more knowledge during the conference days
Peter Palmér has extensive experience in lean management in both production and product development, as well as experience of leadership in other cultures. He is a frequent speaker at international and national conferences on the subject of LPD and leadership. Peter has been on the LPPDE board for five years and is a member of various LPD-networks and has co-developed LPD training courses with Chalmers Professional Education and The KTH Royal Institute of Technology.
Advanced Lean Product and Process Development – Tony Wilcox [USD 395 - half day afternoon session)
You are already up on Lean Product Development, Agile and Design Thinking, and have applied some of them successfully in your company. But methods to accelerating innovation are advancing quickly and your company needs to be up on the latest thinking. While sets and flow are still critical basic elements, new methods of developing team creativity, building in quality and driving new product launch are leading to a new era in product development. Tony Wilcox brings you these new methodologies with hands-on exercises and deep interactive discussion. More info
Tony Wilcox is the Vice President, Strategy and Continuous Improvement, Rexnord Water Management. Tony was a graduate student with Allen Ward, a father of the Lean product development movement, and served as General Manager of Product Development at Harley-Davidson.
