GENERAL INFORMATION

Banish wasteful practices for more effective IT services with our Lean IT™ certification.

Lean IT™ is the extension of lean manufacturing and lean services principles applied to the development and management of information technology (IT) products and services. Lean IT™ core concern is the elimination of waste, where waste is work that adds no value to a product or service.

Consultants and evangelists for Lean IT™ identify an abundance of waste across the business service “production line”, including legacy infrastructure and fractured processes.

By reducing waste through application of Lean strategies, CIOs and CTOs from companies around the world are driving IT from the confines of a back-office support function to a central role in delivering customer value.

The Course

Lean IT™ is the next frontier in terms of the extension of the Lean manufacturing and Lean services principles, and applies Lean principles to the development and management of information technology (IT) products and services.

Lean IT™’s core concern is the elimination of waste, where waste is unnecessary work that adds no value to a product or service, but still adds time and effort. Its goal is to continuously improve the value delivered by IT organisations to their customers and the professionalism of IT people.

• Improving customer value
• Continual improvement in small steps

• Reducing waste
• Involving everybody
• Developing people
• Focusing on long-term goals
