Frequently Asked Questions
What is Obeya?
The idea is that the Obeya provides all relevant, up-to-date information about the objectives of the company, about how they are achieved, about the people who work passionately to realize these objectives. That’s where we begin to build the new reality of tomorrow.
The Obeya provides an advanced visual representation of the relevant, planned work and work in progress of a group of people in an organization, therefore supporting their frequent meetings and their drive to continuously improve group performance, while taking their shared strategy to execution and professionalizing collaboration across teams.
We’re in the business of bringing the Obeya Navigation System to every company. We’re here to get your work connected, on the wall. With your people in the room, the right information on the wall, and the use of powerful tools and techniques, you’ll be able to drive your Agile Transformation forward, engage your people and get back on track with your leadership.
The Obeya is your backbone of Continuous Improvement, and the engine for better business performance.
