In these cases, the best outcome is that IT is merely relegated to a supporting utility role in the enterprise; in the worst cases, IT actually contributes to the failure of the lean efforts to deliver lean’s promised benefits. Where IT is tightly integrated into an enterprise’s lean culture, the outcomes are far more positive, with customer satisfaction and profits both increasing, as one expects from a successful lean transformation.

Using several real-world examples which illustrate the results that can be achieved from engaging IT in an enterprise’s lean journey, TAC Expert Dan Miklovic will explore the best options for making IT an integral part of a lean transformation.

Hot issues to be addressed include:

  • What is lean; and why are so many enterprises pursuing lean?
  • How is IT impacted, both functionally and operationally, when an enterprise pursues lean?
  • How can IT assess its lean maturity, so lean benefits remain and do not become transient?
