Due to each project being unique, a different approach and set of strategies may be required to meet project specific requirements. Therefore, with every project, a different set of methods also need to be selected that are complementary to each other in delivering the critical project needs.
The project team should evaluate all potential methods in order to understand two aspects. One, which methods have the potential to really help with achieving the project’s conditions of satisfaction and two, how experienced is the project team to implement a specific method. The method’s potential in meeting the project’s conditions of satisfaction is based on expert judgement of the lean coach and the project leadership. The project team’s comfort level in implementing a method is based on the project team's awareness and understanding of each method.
