Lean IT Training

Businesses no longer rely on IT purely as a support tool, helping to manage their administrative functions. IT now forms the backbone on which their operations deliver value to their customers. As such it is now a critical tool and needs to be firmly aligned to the business objectives.

Lean IT looks at the concepts of IT being effective and efficient by delivering the value that customers seek and simultaneously ensure no wasteful activities are carried out by the business.

As such it is a course aimed just as much at the business end of an organisation as it is applicable to those working in an IT role. The core objective is in aligning business and IT operations but it also creating a culture that seeks perfection via a process of continuous incremental improvement

Lean Principles are concerned with:

  • Increasing customer value
  • Eliminating waste (work that does not add value)
  • Management as a facilitator
  • The involvement of all employees
  • Continual improvement
  • Preserving value with less work.

Many organizations have adopted Lean IT in order to increase customer satisfaction and to achieve greater strategic and financial value.
