About The conference
UNICOM shall be running 2nd Edition of World Business Excellence Summit in Bangalore on 20th March, 2015.
Theme : Meet Leaders in Business Assurance
In the earlier Edition of one day conference on World Business Excellence Summit, we discussed best practices used like the Balanced Scorecard, Lean, the Six Sigma, Agile, ISO, CMMI, Change Management, People and cultural issues.
This year the focus is on LEAN, KANBAN, ScrumBan, DevOps, Innovation Games and Mind Mapping along with other important frameworks and issues related to quality assurance and change management.
Like last year, this year too the focus is to have INTENSE, HANDS-ON and PRACTICAL presentations, so that you can learn and execute these frameworks at your organization.
In software and systems engineering, as in business and manufacturing, there is wide acknowledgement that mature and well-managed processes provide consistent quality and productivity. Many years of industry experience in implementing process improvement have produced mature models, methods and tools for efficiently developing and managing processes that are highly targeted to support business strategy.
Process models can provide a framework for establishing common, integrated, and improving processes in systems and software development, enabling an organisation to establish enterprise-wide best practices that address productivity, quality and costs. An effective Process Improvement programme enables you to tailor your improvement efforts to the business goals set by your organisation, and to choose the areas for improvement which will deliver the best return.
At the lowest level, sound management of development processes means at the very least that code defects can be eliminated early, to produce efficiencies and cost saving. At a higher level, the ability to demonstrate capability and maturity in advance of an audit will be an enormous saver of time and cost in ensuring compliance with statutory regulations.
Increased corporate governance has also brought process improvement to the top of the agenda for many businesses, and given additional motivation for senior management to develop their understanding and involvement in process improvement throughout the organisation.
The essence of process improvement is to implement appropriate best practices in your organisation. By “appropriate” we mean what fits the organisations goals, matches their aspirations, and is pragmatic in their practical working environment. By “best practices" we mean ideal ways of working, not specific products or named methods.
This event also provides a useful and balanced guide to leading process improvement standards and frameworks such as: CMMI®; TMMi; ITIL; Lean; Six Sigma; Agile; ISo 9001; ISO 20000 – it explains what they are, how they work and how they can be implemented.
The programme also looks at the impact Agile has had on Process Improvement, how lean approaches can deliver value from Process Improvement how traditional Process Improvement models can improve and enhance the use of Agile Methods.

This event is designed to be highly interactive and friendly! Event features include a dual track speaker programme, networking sessions and a highly focused exhibition. A friendly interactive format will help you get the most from your day.
The programme begins with an "ice-breaker" session where each of the speakers and exhibitors briefly introduce themselves to the audience and explain what they will be presenting during the day and about their organisations. This is followed by a series of high quality 30 and 45 minute presentations; because it is single track programme everyone can attend all sessions and participate in the discussions. The agenda concludes with a lively and interactive panel session where the presenters, as a group, take questions from the floor and give their shared viewpoints on the issues raised.
Refreshment breaks and a buffet lunch are held in the exhibition so that participants have the opportunity to network and meet the speakers and exhibitors on a one to one basis.
