LEAN IT Foundation

LEAN IT Foundation


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.
