Pilot project

Grundfos

The project has been initiated to assure Grundfos an increased market share whilst maintaining its leading position as world class pump manufacturer. This is expected through the development of a robust concept which, not only, needs to be technically feasible but also have the projected attractiveness and impact for Grundfos’ customer segments. The overall aim with the project is also reducing time to market in the R&D process.

The big why

The pilot project was initiated to safeguard an increased market share whilst maintaining Grundfos' leading position as world-class pump manufacturer. This is expected through the development of a robust concept which not only needs to be technically feasible but also have the projected attractiveness and impact for Grundfos’ customer segments. The overall aim of the pilot project is to reduce time to market in the research and development process

Half Double

In the Grundfos project, the team used the Half Double methodology to reduce time to market by exerting a major focus on:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Working visually
  3. Enhanced emphasis on customer value
The pilot project at Grundfos is categorized as a frontloading project

What did we do?

Impact

  • Pulse of the project: Create project member satisfaction
  • Focus on time to market compared to similar projects
Flow
  • Structure in meetings – daily, weekly, monthly
  • Reorganize to fixed team, fixed allocation and takt in work and meetings
  • Work sessions across teams
Leadership

Facts and numbers

The Project Half Double initiative at Grundfos is expected to deliver impact within 9 months. The project is completed the 15th of June, 2016. 

The team pulse check is a questionnaire which we send out once a month to the project team and key stakeholders to measure and document the effect of the methodology. Furthermore, it is to make the necessary adjustments to ensure energizing working conditions, collaboration and making people feel that they develop personally while contributing to the project. The infographic below displays some of the results from the previous month. At Grundfos, the score ranges from 1 (to a Low Degree) to 5 (To a high degree).
