Many project customers see project management activities as overhead or in lean thinking terms as waste. They question the “bureaucratic”, not client oriented approach of their project organization… and sometimes they might be right. 

Lean Project Management offers a possible answer to their question: eliminating waste and freeing up time to show the real importance of good project management. 

Due to its agile characteristics lean project management quickly shows results with a small amount of effort. This is why customers show a great interest in this emerging methodology. Hence, Lean Project Management courses and consultancy missions are an enrichment to Threon’s global offering.

During this workshop you will select one “lean-candidate” PM process from your own environment and work on a solution it in teams of 2 or 3 participants. This result is your first benefit and can be applied directly to your identified process.
