  • To promote professionalism and adoption of these ideas.

Lean Thinking

  • Lean Thinking provides foundational principles which involve the entire lifecycle of realizing business value; as the lifecycle cuts across the organization, so do the cultural impacts to drivers for Business, Management, and Technology.
  • Lean Thinking provides principles, practices, and a philosophy of a practitioner evolved system which focuses on central Lean concerns, including:
  • Value – incrementally delivered by highest business value,
  • Flow – continual increments, high quality, fast
  • Waste – defined as activities and approaches that reduce the economic value of the product to customers and other stakeholders.
