What would happen if the key program stakeholders are included in the up-front planning? What if the stakeholders developed the schedule? What if they identified risks, opportunities, critical actions, and key assumptions, prior to program kickoff? What if all of this planning only took one to four days? Rockwell Collins has developed a method called Lean Enabled Accelerated Planning (LEAP) that directly addresses these items In this paper, you will learn how LEAP is used to increase customer satisfaction, reduce program risk and increase program performance This paper contains excerpts, experiences and benefits of over two hundred LEAP workshops conducted at Rockwell Collins over the past three years It also shows how LEAP promotes the new Lean Enablers for Managing Engineering Programs © 2014 The Authors.
