About Trainer: Alexei Zheglov (Founder, Lean A-to-Z Inc.)

Alexei Zheglov is a Canadian management consultant, specialising in the Kanban method and Enterprise Services Planning (ESP). He started his career in the 1990s as a software engineer and soon began to notice all kinds of problems modern companies run into as they try to produce and deliver complex intellectual products and professional services to their customers. He tried to “do something about it” and that gradually (by 2010) brought him to Kanban, its power in simplicity, and its pragmatism that is changing people and companies.

Over the years, Alexei has made several important contributions to Kanban and ESP, particularly around metrics and forecasting and the new field of Fitness-for-Purpose. He is a co-author, with David J Anderson, of the new book Fit-for-Purpose: How Modern Businesses Find, Satisfy & Keep Customers and has another book in progress. He has also helped grow the Kanban community globally through his client work, developing many better managers, leaders, and coaches, including training India’s two very first Accredited Kanban Trainers (AKTs). Alexei is recognized as a Kanban Coaching Professional (KCP) and Accredited Kanban Trainer (AKT). He has served for a long time as a Program Advisor to the Lean Kanban University (LKU) coaching program. He teaches all levels of the Kanban curriculum including Kanban – the Alternative Path to Business Agility, ESP, the KCP Masterclass, and the Train-the-Trainer.

At this Lean Kanban India 2018 conference, Alexei will deliver one of the keynotes, exploring the nature of time it takes companies to deliver their products and services to customers. He will also teach a one-day pre-conference workshop on Fitness-for-Purpose and a condensed 90-minute version of it during the conference. Alexei will also team up with a leading Indian trainer to on an enhanced delivery of the two-day Kanban Management Professional (KMP II) class.
