Keynote: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & Leaders
Simply put, Lean and Agile both share a core philosophy of continuous improvement focused on enhancing the customer value of your products and services. For Lean and Agile principles to be executed successfully, leaders must change culture and often their own management behaviors, in support of the continuous improvement culture needed.

That’s where Steven Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” comes in. This best-selling book is an all-time leadership classic that has sold millions of copies. Covey’s model for personal and team effectiveness has changed the lives of countless professionals for the better and has had a lasting business impact that is undeniable.

In this informative and inspirational session, Gary will look at these time-tested habits through a Lean leadership lens to explicitly highlight how each of the 7 Habits (Be Proactive, Begin With The End In Mind, First Things First, Create A Win/Win, Seek First To Understand, Synergize, Sharpen The Saw) relate to and support Lean principles.
