Our mode of operation has always been to help educate people by offering free seminars and webinars and talking at conferences as well. Our consultants have provided a steady stream of blogs, webinars (with recordings), podcasts, books and more. This has resulted in an overwhelming amount of intellectual property. To make this more accessible, we offer you the Net Objectives’ Portal. Read More

The Lean-Agile portal supports your efforts to transform to a Lean-Agile organization by describing Net Objectives’ approach to Lean-Agile transformation. Transformation requires shifting culture, organizational structure, activities and mindsets. This requires an understanding of Lean-Agile methods as well as a community in which to continuously improve – essentially transformation through learning in a community. The Lean-Agile Framework provides a visual layout of the required components. What to do is obviously important. Education is provided in multiple dimensions. One must build community if growth and sustainability are to be achieved. The Net Objectives portal facilitates this by integrating forums with all of the information on the portal.
