1-Day Workshop with Barry O'Reilly - April 24th, 2019
Large organizations often struggle to launch innovative products, improve processes or create environments to help their people succeed. A number of factors conspire to obstruct moving fast at scale; competing priorities, siloed thinking, risk averse cultures and an inability to adopt an experimentation mindset all play a part. Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organization Innovate At Scale lays out an alternative future vision for organizations with practical principles and patterns to help you move fast at scale—and demonstrate why and how to apply these methodologies throughout your entire organization, rather than with just one department or team. Smart enterprises constantly evolve their system of work, from governance and financial management to technical architecture and organizational design in the pursuit of radically improved performance. Adopting Lean Enterprise is challenging, will take time and commitment, but is vital to harness the forces that can accelerating the rate of innovation in your organization.
In this training we’ll discuss how to take a scientific approach to developing products, processes and people while running large scale programs of work. You’ll also learn how to create a capability that enables your organization to transform continuously to meet internal, market and customer demands. This training uses our Orient, Explore, Accelerate, Transform framework to guide you through the key components of creating high performance organizations.

“Barry was instrumental in the conception and formation of an ‘innovation engine’ at lastminute.com. Not only were we able to identify and develop winning ideas at pace but the whole organization was reinvigorated by an approach which delivered measurable results, doubling revenue for the business.”

“Barry helped AIB, the largest retail bank in Ireland, achieve a step change in its digital journey. By combining his senior level communication skills with his deep insight on how to leverage technology at scale, he influenced key stakeholders across the bank to do things differently.”
– Allan Molloy Head of Customers, Channels and Payments, Allied Irish Bank
“Agility in a digital world is no longer optional and if you don’t embrace experimentation and value based decision making in your market, then someone else will. Barry can take you and your team on a journey towards disrupting the disruptors and then, like us, you will learn to use techniques such as Lean Product Development and Workload Visualisation in order to make the right “customer-based” decisions. These techniques also made us address every aspect of our thinking from just in time architecture towards continuous delivery, hence cutting cycle times in half in order to deliver new products and platforms more frequently. In fact we went from huge twice yearly releases to multiple releases per day. This way of working not only energizes the team but it enables innovation through learning and more importantly builds mutual respect between stakeholders which may be broken.”
– Fin Goulding, former CIO at PaddyPower BetFair
