While the concept of Lean Manufacturing has been around for some time now, lean implementations within IT are new and they end up a lot like the Leaning Tower of Pisa; built on a foundation that is unsuitable for it's structure. Most Lean IT implementations are built on a subset of lean concepts surrounding the Seven Deadly Wastes; however, a true system of pull that represents demand (the voice of the customer), facilitates flow and reduces waste -- seldom materializes. Consequently, a Lean Culture is never created and our new processes are seldom maintained. Lean IT ends up being a leaning tower that never rights itself.
