Lean management in the Tech industry: what to expect?

Should you need to improve the results of one of your IT activities by 25% in a few months, you should consider the Lean IT approach. Whether it is, for example, to reduce the cost of user support/run, accelerate the time-to-market of your products or improve the satisfaction of your users, Lean IT provides a proven and concrete approach to achieve this.

Lean Management allows the Tech industry to obtain concrete and significant benefits, similar to the outstanding results obtained in manufacturing and the service industries. How can you benefit from these results in your own organization? How can you make your management evolve?

This white paper addresses these issues and many others, starting with an overview of the origins of Lean Management, its diffusion beyond manufacturing activities, and the 3 ideals at the heart of Lean. Then 7 different use cases in IT/Technology will be presented, from the improvement of current processes to the design of new products. We will thus see what tangible benefits are obtained by Tech organizations that apply Lean IT, both for their customers, their employees and the company itself.
