    Many organisations face the challenge of making their project management more agile. However, the circumstances are often not suitable for this: The desired agility either does not fit the existing projects, or there is a lack of sufficient systematics. Lean Project Management shows how the advantages of different Lean Project Management methods – adaptive, targeted and flexible – can be combined. In addition to the established methods of classic and agile project management, proven methods and tools from Lean Management are used and further developed with a view to the requirements of project management (such as Gemba, 5S and more). The book shows how an organisation can systematically professionalise its project management, and make it more flexible in a targeted manner, in order to achieve more value with less effort. Aimed at students on postgraduate courses in business and project management as well as professional project managers working in organisations both large and small, Lean Project Management is a clear and comprehensive guide to combining the best methods to achieve optimal results.
