What do you say to over 60% reduction in lead times? How about over 30% reduction in costs? These are just some examples of my achievements.

I’m Charan Atreya, the author of The Kanban Way. I am driven by a fundamental belief: “There’s got to be a better way to do this.” This conviction fuels my commitment to leading teams through transformation and achieving sustained improvement by leading differently.

I’ve over 18 years of leadership experience across diverse sectors including manufacturing, insurance, transportation, telecom, CRM, IT, and software development. I specialize in guiding organizations through change. I turn around failing projects, reducing product time to market, enhancing PMO maturity through robust governance and processes, and driving significant business transformation.

An illustrative example of my impact is the Cycle Time reduction in IT services using lean principles, demonstrating our capability to enhance operational efficiency dramatically.


I use many tools at my disposal to help lead teams.

  • Product & Project Management: Agile, Lean, Scrum
  • Change Management: Prosci ADKAR
  • Process improvement: Data driven, Six Sigma Black Belt, Kaizen, Value Stream Mapping, FMEA, Statistical Analysis
  • IT Operations: ITIL (Incident Management, Problem Management, Change Management), Site Reliability Engineering (SRE)
