La Leadership di 5° Livello La Leadership di 5° Livello si basa sulll’idea che :• il rispetto nei confronti delle persone,• una equilibrata dose di altruismo,• un forte impegno, compongano una potente miscela, per far emergere i lati migliori dei collaboratori subordinati e raggiungere buoni risultati per l’azienda.

Agile and Lean Applied to Construction - Agile Software Development for Web and Mobile - Ennova Large scale construction projects suffer from cost and time overruns that are typically a symptom of productivity problems and directly affect overall industry profitability. As a result, methodologies have been developed to reduce the risk of overruns and improve project outcomes. A number of these methods are based upon Lean production principles that focus on identifying value, eliminating waste and creating a smooth flow of materials, information and work. The application of Lean to construction is based upon treating the construction site as a temporary production line and is referred to as Lean Construction. Agile methods have been found to improve the reliability of project delivery in complex environments, by decomposing the scope into small manageable parts, then completing these parts in order of greatest value.

While we all know the importance of proper maintenance schedules to mitigating disruption of building services, execution has proven somewhat difficult. When you purchase a car, you given an instruction manual and a service manual. The latter is key to trouble free operation, and to maintaining a valid warranty. When we buy or we lease a building, office, or home we more often than not, know relatively little about the actual physical and functional conditions at the time of the transaction. Anyone who purchases a building, for example, certainly would benefit from knowing who designed it, how it was built, what are the components and systems used, how they were installed, etc.

Service Marketing Mix - 7Ps of marketing mix The service marketing mix is also known as an extended marketing mix and is an integral part of a service blueprint design. The service marketing mix consists of 7 P’s as compared to the 4 P’s of a product marketing mix. Simply said, the service marketing mix assumes the service as a product itself. However it adds 3 more P’s which are required for optimum service delivery.

The Marketing Mix: Product Products come in several forms. Consumer products can be categorized as convenience goods, for which consumers are willing to invest very limited shopping efforts. Thus, it is essential to have these products readily available and have the brand name well known. Shopping goods, in contrast, are goods in which the consumer is willing to invest a great deal of time and effort. For example, consumers will spend a great deal of time looking for a new car or a medical procedure. Specialty goods are those that are of interest only to a narrow segment of the population—e.g., drilling machines.

User Stories: An Agile Introduction 1. Introduction to User Stories A good way to think about a user story is that it is a reminder to have a conversation with your customer (in XP, project stakeholders are called customers), which is another way to say it's a reminder to do some just-in-time analysis.

Understanding Lean Project Management The meaningless mantra of on-time, on-budget The UK television programme Grand Designs usually starts with a couple who want to build their dream home, vowing to “be in by Christmas”.

LPDS is a philosophy1, but also a delivery system2 in which the project team help customers to decide what they want3, not only realize decisions and perform activities. Ballard3 described LPDS also as “project-based production system” because it is a temporary production system4. In contrast to traditional project delivery systems, LPDS questions what needs to be done and who is responsible for the task at the very beginning of the project.
