In today’s IT landscape, there are continuous demands for CIOs to cut waste and cost from the IT Service Management delivery process. This is where Lean IT can help extract value. We live in a time where processes themselves do not only need be effective, but cost effective as well. Is what we do really necessary? What can be minimalized? Applying lean principles will not only “cut the fat”, but strike a balance for continuous service improvement.
