Lean Value Innovation
By adding innovation towards value to customer and value to the enterprise two important outcomes surface: the gain of a significative competitive advantage and the acceleration of enterprise maturity. The Value Innovation framework encompasses innovative thinking, innovative methodologies and tools, the creation of an innovation-fostering environment, and special attention to the human factor (which is often ignored or given little importance). Of course, lean-agile thinking and methodologies are part of Value Innovation, but we add new, important elements to make you even more successful. This approach helps you get a significant competitive advantage and make accelerated maturity even more effective, at a lower cost and in very short time.

Kanban is a mechanism for evolutionary change and the most effective way to mature your enterprise in less time than other well-known metodologies and with virtually no resistance to change. In fact, a survey prepared by our CEO, together with Gabe Piccoli and Lurie Williams, for the Cutter Consortium that was published in September 2010 showed that 58% of the teams doing Kanban reported increased customer satisfaction; 64% reported increase in quality; and 71% reported increase in productivity over other, mostly agile, methodologies. This methodology is being adopted also by enterprises who were originally reluctant to other agile methodologies. This is because Kanban is not a drop-your-current-process-and-start-over methodology. It starts where you currently are and generates continuous improvements that motivates stakeholders to actively participate in the improvements, making it amazingly effective. Furthermore it scales with ease and has fabulous impact at both team and enterprise level. Masa was one of the first Lean Kanban University Accredited Kanban Trainers/Coaches (and the first one in the world who also speaks Spanish).
