Vector Forum 2010: Better Testing

Vector Forum 2011: Reduce Waste – Lean and Agile Development

The Vector Forum 2011 took place on 30. June 2011 at Vector in Stuttgart with the topic "Reduce Waste – Lean and Agile Development". Around seventy executives from industry and experts from Vector Consulting Services met for a half-day sharing of experiences.

Increasingly, companies put their development on a diet. The aim is to reduce costs, shorten project duration, accelerate innovations and succeed in global competition. Lean Development helps in trimming your structures, processes and tools. Agile techniques help teams and projects to focus on what is essential and to flexibly achieve committed objectives.

Interesting presentations and practical discussions evolved around the questions: "How to make development lean and agile?" and "What can be learned from the experiences in other companies?"

Experts from BMW, Bosch, EADS, Siemens, Thales and Vector Consulting Services presented practical insights, how lean and agile development practices help in optimizing your development so that more projects are feasible with the same capacity, lead times are shortened, start of production or first off are safeguarded, and product quality is improved early in development.

Until late in the evening the participants discussed around a dinner on this highly relevant theme to share challenges and solutions from different industries and viewpoints. Several industry journals will further communicate on the Vector Forum 2011. Are you interested in the Vector Forum 2011 or in our Vector Executive Forums around the world?
