Creating the Path for a Lean IT Transformation

How effectively are work processes aligned between IT and the rest of your organization? It's easy to get caught up in the debate of Lean versus Agile with each business unit championing its favorite. But, the two methodologies are not mutually exclusive. Agile is more about 'How the work is done' and not so much about 'What work should be done?' or 'How can waste be removed from the overall value stream?' Agile is most effective as a subset of a broader Lean Management System. The challenge is how to effectively embed the complementary approaches.

We asked Michael Orzen and Thomas Paider, authors of The Lean IT Field Guide, to share a few insights about the subject and the associated new course offered by MoreSteam.
