Ho Chi Minh City, February 3, 2013 – We are pleased to announce the 1st Lean Mindset Workshop and Kaizen Camp Gathering, to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on March 4, 5 and 6, 2013. The event will include award-winning authors and experts on Lean Software Development, Mary and Tom Poppendieck as well as the father of Personal Kanban and co-founder of Kaizen Camp, Jim Benson and Tonianne DeMaria Barry, co-author of Personal Kanban: Mapping Work | Navigating Life, and co-founder of Kaizen Camp. This by all means will be Southeast Asia’s biggest event for Lean, Kaizen and Agile.

March 4, 2013 – Lean Mindset Workshop by Mary and Tom Poppendieck
In the last quarter of the 20th century, western companies drifted into the habit of wearing analytical hats most of the time, while the intuitive hats got dusty on the shelf. But since the turn of the century, companies that sport intuitive hats seem to be doing very well. In fact, if we’re not careful, they might become a threat to our business.

A company with a lean mindset wears both hats at the same time and knows how to leverage the advantages of each. For those of us who have gotten into the habit of wearing our analytical hats most of the time, a lean mindset means moving our thinking: from analytical toward intuitive,
from slow toward fast, from individualistic toward cooperative, from disciplined toward adaptive,
from being good toward getting better. This workshop will present research, case studies, and exercises to help you understand what a lean mindset is and how it can help your company become more productive, deliver faster, and experience significantly higher quality.
